Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
1022 PM EST Thu Feb 22 2024

.SYNOPSIS...A weak ridge extends from the NW Bahamas westward
across the entire Gulf of Mexico, and will shift eastward ahead 
of the next cold front forecast to emerge off the Texas coast 
tonight. Fresh southerly winds are ahead of the front over the 
western and north central Gulf. The front will reach from the 
western Florida Panhandle to near Brownsville, Texas by Fri 
morning, and will be over the south waters on Sat morning, 
extending across the Straits of Florida to near Tampico, Mexico. 
Moderate to fresh northerly winds can be expected behind the front
with moderate seas. Surface high pressure will build in the wake 
of the front late Sat through early next week.
