Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
413 PM EDT Wed Oct 5 2022

.SYNOPSIS...The tail end of a cold front extends across the
Straits of Florida along 24N and E of 85W with scattered showers.
The front will drift south through the end of the week, then 
stall and dissipate by late Sat. High pressure north of the area 
will maintain gentle to moderate easterly winds and slight to 
moderate seas through tonight. Another cold front is expected to 
move into the coastal Gulf States on Fri, the central Gulf Sat 
and the southeastern Gulf and Straits of Florida Sun, then 
stall. Expect fresh northeast to east winds across the 
southeastern Gulf starting Fri and through Sun night as the 
pressure gradient tightens between high pressure north of the 
fronts and lower pressure in the western Caribbean.
