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...

Generally fair weather prevails across the basin with only 
patches of clouds moving quickly across the area. A weak cold 
front will move into the NW Gulf late tonight, then stall and 
weaken from the FL panhandle to NE Mexico Sun through Mon night. 
High pressure will build across the region Tue. Moderate to fresh
return flow is expected to the south of the front, with seas of 
4-6 ft dominating much of the offshore waters. 

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

Fair weather conditions prevail across the basin. The only area
with a few showers is located south of Hispaniola and Cuba mainly
north of 17N between 73W-80W. Abundant dry air in the mid-to- 
upper levels of the atmosphere is expected to limit significant 
thunderstorms from developing. High pres N of the area will 
support fresh to strong trade winds east of 80W through this 
morning. Winds and seas will gradually diminish today through Tue
night, as high pressure to the north slowly weakens. However, 
expect strong pulses along the coast of Colombia each night 
through mid- week due to nocturnal influences. Seas of 10-11 ft
can be expected associated with the strongest winds. 

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

Strong surface high pressure centered near Bermuda and dry air 
in the mid and upper-levels are supporting fair weather and 
moderate to fresh winds across the subtropical west and central 
Atlantic waters this morning. High pressure centered near 
Bermuda will weaken and shift southward Sat through Mon night. A 
cold front will move off the SE coast of the U.S. on Mon, then 
become stationary along 28N through Tue, with high pressure 
building N of the front. Large swell of 8-9 ft will reach the
offshore zones E of 60W midweek as a strong mid latitude storm 
system crosses the central Atlantic.
