Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
1110 AM EDT Wed May 25 2022

.SYNOPSIS...Fresh southerly return flow will prevail today
across the basin as the pressure gradient between high pressure
over the western Atlantic and lower pressure over Mexico
tightens. Winds will pulse to strong near the N coast of the
Yucatan Peninsula this evening. A cold front is expected to move
into the western Gulf tonight with moderate to fresh southerly
winds ahead of it as it moves across the basin. The front will
weaken as it reaches the NE Gulf on Fri. Showers and
thunderstorms are expected to accompany the front through Thu
night. The front will be followed by gentle to moderate winds and
slight to moderate seas Fri and Sat as weak high pressure ridging
settles over the basin.
