.SYNOPSIS...A strong cold front is along 30N86W to 25N90W to
18.5N95W. Fresh to strong SW to S return flow will shift
eastward across the N Gulf of Mexico tonight, to the east of the

the Gulf of Mexico now, from 21N to 27N W of 95N. The gale-force
winds are forecast to move southward along the coast of Mexico
tonight, being S of 20N of 94W. Expect the cold front to pass
through 26N82W beyond the NE corner of the Yucatan Peninsula by
Sunday morning, and continue moving SE and out of the area
during Sunday afternoon. A squall line will precede the front as
it crosses the Gulf of Mexico. Strong to near gale-force NW
winds will be blowing across the Gulf waters tonight and Sunday
to the west of the cold front, elsewhere. The wind speeds will
taper off across the basin by sunrise on Monday. A surface ridge
from the N will shift E and allow strong SE to S return flow to
develop in the western Gulf of Mexico by Tuesday morning. The
strong return flow will expand to the eastern Gulf of Mexico on
Tuesday night. It is possible that another strong cold front may
enter the NW Gulf of Mexico by Wednesday morning.
