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...

High pressure will prevail across the area through Wed, then 
retrear eastward. This will enable a cold front to move into the 
NW Gulf on Thu. The front will move across the gulf waters, 
reaching the far eastern Gulf by Fri evening, where it will 
become stationary and weaken to a trough Sat. Scattered showers 
and thunderstorms are expected with this frontal system. 

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

Moderate to fresh trade winds will prevail across the south 
central and eastern Caribbean through tonight. The trade winds 
will slowly diminish thereafter. A cold front may move into the 
northwestern Caribbean from the Gulf of Mexico by the end of the 
week into next weekend.


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

A stationary front extends from near 31N69W to 26N71W, with a
surface trough extending from 26N71W to Haiti. The front and
trough will gradually dissipate through Wed. A cold front will 
move off the southeastern United States coast Sat. Scattered 
showers and thunderstorms, some with gusty winds, associated 
with this system are expected to affect much of the northwestern 
waters Fri through Sat night.
