Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
414 AM EST Wed Jan 19 2022

.SYNOPSIS...A ridge will continue to dominate the Gulf waters
today. Fresh southerly return flow across the western Gulf will
persist today ahead of the next cold front forecast to emerge
from the coast of Texas late tonight. The front will reach from
SE Louisiana to Brownsville, Texas on Thu morning, and from the
Florida Big Bend to near Veracruz, Mexico by Thu night. Strong
northerly winds and building seas are expected in the wake of the
front over the western Gulf. Gale conditions are forecast over
the west-central and SW Gulf Thu through Fri. Then, the front is
forecast to move slowly on Fri, and a low pressure may develop
along the frontal boundary over the NE Gulf on Sat. The low is
forecast to move NE into the W Atlantic dragging the cold front
across the SE Gulf by Sat night.
