Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
352 PM EDT Tue May 17 2022

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure over the central Gulf will maintain
gentle to moderate S to SE winds over the western half of the
basin and light to gentle variable wind across the eastern Gulf
into mid week. SE winds will increase to moderate to fresh
speeds over the far western Gulf tonight into Sat night, 
expanding to the eastern Gulf Thu night through Sun as low 
pressure develops along Central America and the Bermuda high 
extends into portions of the E Gulf. A tighter pressure gradient
between these two features will likely result in locally strong
winds across the northern Yucatan peninsula offshore waters Fri
night into Sun.
