Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
1110 PM EDT Sat Sep 21 2019

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure centered along the eastern seaboard of
the U.S. will dominate the Gulf waters into the start of next
week. The pressure gradient remain quite tight over the eastern
Gulf through Sun afternoon, resulting in fresh to strong
easterly winds and building seas. New high pressure will develop
over the northern Gulf early next week, causing the pressure
gradient to weaken and wind and sea conditions to improve
through the middle of the week.
