Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
931 AM EST Mon Jan 27 2020

.SYNOPSIS...Low pressure of 1012 mb over the northern Gulf near
29N88W has a trailing cold front to near Veracruz, Mexico. The
low will track eastward across the remainder of the north-central
Gulf through tonight, the east-southeast, reaching S Florida by
early Tue while the front sags S and slowly dissipates. Another
cold front will move off the Texas coast Tue night, weakening by
the time it reaches the SE Gulf Wed night ahead of a third front,
which may impact the basin by the end of the week. It is
expected to be followed by fresh to strong northerly winds.
