Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
1033 AM EDT Thu Jun 13 2024

.SYNOPSIS...A trough extends from near Tampa Bay, Florida to the
central Bay of Campeche. Scattered to numerous showers and 
thunderstorms are southeast of the trough impacting most of the 
southeastern Gulf and waters just offshore the northern Yucatan 
Peninsula. The trough is expected to gradually weaken through 
late Fri. Looking ahead, a broad area of low pressure is forecast
to form over the southwestern Gulf of Mexico this weekend or 
early next week. Environmental conditions appear conducive for 
gradual development of this system, and a tropical depression 
could form during the early or middle part of next week while it 
moves slowly westward or west-northwestward. Increasing winds and
building seas are expected with this system.
