Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
341 AM EST Thu Jan 21 2021

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure over the northeast Gulf will shift southeast
today to the Bahamas. A trailing surface ridge will move into the
southern Gulf through Fri ahead of a cold front moving into the 
northern Gulf by late Fri. The front will stall across the 
northern Gulf Fri night, then dissipate through Sat night. High 
pressure building north of front over the Carolinas will support 
increase SE winds and building seas across the western Gulf Sat 
into Sun, with strong SE winds possible in the northwest Gulf by 
Sun night as low pressure forms over northern Mexico. Winds and 
seas diminish across the Gulf into Mon as the high shifts farther 
east and a weak cold front moves into the coastal waters of Texas 
through Mon night.
