Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
1107 PM EDT Thu May 13 2021

.SYNOPSIS...A cold front extends from near Ft Meyers, Florida to
25N92W, then stationary to the western Bay of Campeche. The 
front will move slowly overnight, and reach from Naples, Florida
to 25N94W to the western Bay of Campeche, stall from the Straits
of Florida into the west-central Gulf Fri night then lift 
northward and dissipate through Sun. Moderate to fresh easterly 
flow will persist over most areas into early next week as high 
pressure builds north of the area in the wake of the front.
