Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
440 PM EDT Sat May 25 2019

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure over the southeastern U.S. will
maintain moderate to fresh southeast flow over the northwest Gulf
through Mon, then increase slightly to moderate to occasionally
strong Mon night through early Wed as low pressure deepens over
the central U.S. The flow then diminishes to gentle to moderate
speeds on Thu. Fresh to strong northeast to east winds will occur
each night over the southwestern Gulf as the nocturnal surface
trough moves off the the Yucatan Peninsula at night and to across
the southwestern Gulf in the mornings. Smoke from fires in
southern Mexico will maintain hazy skies over much of the
southwestern Gulf and eastern Bay of Campeche through the early
part of the upcoming week.
