Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
341 PM EST Fri Jan 15 2021

.SYNOPSIS...A cold front from the Florida Big Bend to 21N94.5W to
the central Bay of Campeche will move eastward across the entire
Gulf through tonight, with reinforcing cold air supporting strong
NW winds and building seas over the northeast and north central
Gulf tonight through Sat. High pressure will build in the wake of
the front and support generally tranquil marine conditions across
the basin Sun into Mon. The high pressure will shift east of the
area early next week, allowing winds and seas to increase over the
northwest Gulf Mon and Tue between the high pressure and lower
pressure farther west over Texas.
