Marine Weather Discussion for the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea,
and Tropical North Atlantic from 07N to 19N between 55W and 64W
and the Southwest North Atlantic including the Bahamas

...GULF OF MEXICO...

A ridge will dominate the Gulf waters through Wed maintaining
gentle to moderate winds and slight seas with the exception of
moderate to locally fresh winds near the W coast of the Yucatan
peninsula due to local effects. Looking ahead, the ridge will
shift north starting mid week, ahead of a trough that will move
westward across Florida and into the southeast Gulf.  

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

High pressure north of the area will maintain strong to near
gale force winds off Colombia through mid week, as well as fresh
to locally strong winds in the Windward Passage and Gulf of
Honduras. These winds will diminish through late week as the
high pressure weakens.  

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

A trough north of the Bahamas will persist through mid week,
then shift west as high pressure builds north the region. This
pattern will maintain moderate to fresh trade winds near the
Windward Passage through late in the week.
