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 compact low pressure system over the north-central Gulf near
27N92W will move eastward and weaken today while pulling a slow-
moving cold front into the central Gulf. Fresh to strong NE to E
winds behind the front will diminish as the front stalls over
the central Gulf tonight into Mon, then dissipates by Mon night.
High pressure will build over the SW N Atlantic early this week,
with a ridge expected to extend westward across the eastern Gulf
through mid-week. Another cold front may move into the northern
Gulf late Thu night. Elsewhere, fresh to locally strong winds
will pulse each evening north and west of the Yucatan Peninsula.
...CARIBBEAN SEA AND TROPICAL N ATLANTIC FROM 07N TO 19N BETWEEN
55W AND 64W...
Winds over the basin will gradually increase through the middle
of this week as high pressure builds over the western Atlantic.
Fresh to occasionally strong winds will pulse each night over the
Gulf of Honduras. Fresh to strong winds with locally higher seas
will prevail along the coast of Colombia through the middle of
this week. Long-period northerly swell will continue affecting
the waters east of the Leeward Islands through Mon night, then
subside through mid-week.
...SW N ATLANTIC INCLUDING THE BAHAMAS...
Deep low pressure NE of the area will continue moving away from
the forecast waters today, allowing winds to diminish over the NE
portion. Northerly swell generated by this low will produce very
large seas across the waters east and northeast of the Bahamas
through Mon night. Elsewhere, a slow-moving cold front extending
from 22N56W to the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic will
stall later today and dissipate tonight into early Mon. High
pressure will move SE across the northern waters late Mon through
Tue night, then maintain a ridge across the central waters
through mid-week. Looking ahead, a cold front may move off the SE
U.S. coast late Thu night.
