Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
426 AM EDT Tue Apr 7 2020

.SYNOPSIS...A warm front lifting across the north-central Gulf
will weaken and move inland later today into tonight. High
pressure will build over the NE Gulf today and pass southward
across the eastern Gulf through Wed night. A cold front will
approach the northern Gulf Coast Thu and Thu night, move across
the northern Gulf waters Fri, then stall and weaken Fri night
into Sat. Expect strengthening southerly winds across the Gulf Sat
night as low pressure deepens over the SE United States. Smoke
from agricultural fires in southern Mexico may reduce visibilities
over the Bay of Campeche.
