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...

Weak surface ridging building across N Gulf will persist through
Fri, then lift northward. Gentle to moderate SE winds should
prevail across most of the Gulf Sat through Mon. Sea fog is
possible today over NW Gulf, persisting through early next week.


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

The Bermuda High north of the region will support fresh to
strong E trades across central and E Caribbean through at least
Mon night, with winds pulsing to gale force off the coast of
Colombia mainly during overnight and early morning hours. Fresh
to strong NE winds in the Windward Passage will persist through
Mon. Fresh to strong E trades should develop in the Gulf of
Honduras nightly beginning Sat night. N swell with E wind waves
are producing combined seas of up to 10 ft in the tropical
Atlantic waters east of the Windward Islands. These conditions
will prevail through Mon.  

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

A weak cold front will move from west to east across  the waters
north of 28N tonight and Fri. As the Bermuda High builds north
of the area behind the front, fresh to strong E  winds will be
supported across the waters south of 22N late Fri  through late
Mon. N swell combined with E wind waves in this area will
produce combined seas up to 10 ft late Sat through Mon north of
