and offshore waters of Veracruz Fri evening. Expect strong north
to northeast winds elsewhere behind the front and building seas
through Fri night. Seas will subside Sat and Sat night. Fresh
southerly flow will set up over the western Gulf Sat night
through Sun night ahead of the next cold front expected in the
far NW Gulf on Sun night.

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure north of the area will support fresh 
to strong winds near the Windward Passage through tonight. A 
cold front will move over the northwest waters today, then
become stationary near 30N through Thu. Reinforcing cold air
will push a strong cold front across the forecast area Thu night
through Sat. Near gale to gale force winds are expected on both
sides of the front on Fri. Winds will gradually diminish across 
the region Sat through Sun. Large seas, producing potentially 
hazardous conditions, are expected over the waters north and
