Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
309 AM EST Thu Feb 27 2020

.SYNOPSIS...A cold front has moved SE of the Gulf early this
morning. In its wake, storm force NW winds in the Bay of Campeche
have diminished to gales, and will quickly fall below 30 kt
later this morning as high pressure builds into the area.
Hazardous seas will gradually subside from N to S today, with
tranquil conditions by Fri. A weak reinforcing cold front will
sweep through the NE Gulf Fri night, likely bringing some fresh
NW winds. High pressure will shift east of the Gulf Sun, with
fresh return flow increasing to strong for much of the Gulf early
next week.
