Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
951 AM EDT Mon Oct 14 2019

.SYNOPSIS...A stationary front extends from the western Florida 
panhandle to 28N91W and to 30N94W. The stationary front will 
lift to the north of the area as a warm front this afternoon. 
Otherwise, relatively weak high pressure centered east of 
northern Florida will maintain little change to winds and seas 
through Tue night. The next cold front will push into the 
northern Gulf waters on Wed, reach from near Ceder Key, Florida 
to near 26N90W and stationary to the lower Texas coast late Wed. 
The cold front will become stationary on Thu from near Fort 
Myers to near 26N90W and to near northeastern Mexico. A broad 
area of low pressure, that is currently over the southwestern 
Caribbean Sea, is expected to to move across Central America and 
into the Bay of Campeche by Wed. Numerous showers and 
thunderstorms will accompany this area of low pressure.
