Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
405 AM EDT Fri Oct 20 2017

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure will continue to extend from the Mid-
Atlantic states southwestward to the northern Gulf of Mexico
waters through Sunday night, as a cold front moves off the Texas
coast. Fresh E winds in the northern Gulf waters will become SE
across the NW Gulf waters this morning, continue through
Saturday, then become light southerly flow just ahead of the 
Sunday evening cold front for the Texas coast. The front is 
expected to reach from FL Panhandle to SW corner of area late 
Monday, from SW FL coast to N central Yucatan Peninsula late 
Tuesday. Strong high pressure will build SE across the area in the
wake of the front with fresh to locally strong northerly winds 
spreading from W to E across the forecast waters.
