Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
231 PM EST Sat Jan 23 2021

.SYNOPSIS...A stationary front extends across the northern Gulf 
coastal waters. The front will slowly retreat northward as a warm 
front through the weekend. Some fog is expected N of the boundary.
High pressure will build over the SE U.S. with increasing 
southerly return flow and building seas Sun and Mon. The ridge 
will weaken late Mon as a weak cold front moves into the western 
Gulf, stalling by early Tue. The front will then get reinforced 
and progress eastward across the basin into Fri.
