Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
1039 PM EDT Sun Jun 17 2018

.SYNOPSIS...The combination of a mid to upper low over the SW Gulf 
and broad low pressure over the western gulf will continue to 
result in numerous showers and thunderstorms over much of the 
central and northwestern gulf waters through Tue. A tight pressure
gradient between the low pressure and high pressure over the 
eastern gulf will maintain strong southeast to south winds over 
the waters W of 90W through Wed. Fresh to locally strong southeast
winds will continue over the W central gulf and SW Gulf waters 
through Thu. High pressure ridging extending from Atlantic to 
across the northern gulf will dominate the gulf Thu through Fri 
night as it shifts southward.
