...GULF OF MEXICO...

MODEL PREFERENCE: GLOBAL MODEL CONSENSUS. HIGH CONFIDENCE.

HIGH PRESSURE PREVAILS OVER THE NORTHERN WATERS. LATEST SATELLITE DERIVED WINDS AND SEAS ALONG WITH SHIP...BUOY...AND CMAN DATA DEPICT LIGHT TO GENTLE WINDS WITH SEAS IN THE 1-3 FT RANGE. LITTLE CHANGE IN THE WEATHER PATTERN IS ANTICIPATED THROUGH THE WEEK. HIGH PRESSURE WILL PREVAIL OVER THE NORTHERN WATERS. A THERMALLY INDUCED TROUGH WILL SHIFT OFF THE YUCATAN COAST EACH EVENING...SHIFT WESTWARD OVER THE SW GULF DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS AND DISSIPATE EACH MORNING.


...CARIBBEAN SEA AND TROPICAL N ATLC FROM 07N TO 19N BETWEEN 55W AND 64W...

MODEL PREFERENCE: GLOBAL MODEL CONSENSUS. HIGH CONFIDENCE.

LATEST SATELLITE DERIVED WINDS AND SEAS ALONG WITH SHIP...BUOY... AND CMAN DATA DEPICT FRESH TO STRONG TRADES OVER THE CENTRAL CARIBBEAN...GENTLE TO MODERATE TRADES OVER THE EASTERN AND WESTERN CARIBBEAN...AND GENTLE WINDS OVER THE TROPICAL N ATLC WATERS. SEAS ARE IN THE 6-9 FT RANGE OVER THE CENTRAL CARIBBEAN...3-5 FT OVER THE EASTERN CARIBBEAN...4-6 FT OVER THE WESTERN CARIBBEAN...AND 4-5 FT OVER THE TROPICAL N ATLC. HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE WILL STRENGTHEN SLIGHTLY OVER THE NEXT DAY. THIS WILL TIGHTEN THE PRESSURE GRADIENT AND INCREASE COVERAGE OF FRESH TO STRONG TRADES AND INCREASE SEAS OVER THE CARIBBEAN WATERS THROUGH THE WEEK.


...SW N ATLANTIC INCLUDING THE BAHAMAS...

HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE PREVAILS OVER THE FORECAST WATERS. LATEST SATELLITE DERIVED WINDS AND SEAS ALONG WITH SHIP...BUOY...AND CMAN DATA DEPICT LIGHT TO GENTLE WINDS WITH SEAS IN THE 3-4 FT RANGE OUTSIDE THE BAHAMAS...AND 2 FT OR LESS WEST OF THE BAHAMAS. A WEAK FRONTAL BOUNDARY WILL SHIFT INTO THE NW WATERS BY TONIGHT WITH THE POSSIBILITY FOR A WEAK LOW TO FORM ALONG THE TAIL END OF THE FRONT BY LATE TONIGHT. IS ANY LOW FORMS...IT IS EXPECTED TO SHIFT OUT OF THE AREA BY MONDAY AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS WESTWARD ACROSS THE REGION. ANOTHER WEAK FRONT MAY REACH THE FAR NW WATERS THURSDAY BUT IS NOT EXPECTED TO MAKE IT VERY FAR INTO THE FORECAST AREA.
