SYNOPSIS

The axis of Atlantic ridging will extend across our local waters
Today and will then shift eastward on Friday as broad low
pressure moves into the southern Gulf of Mexico. This low is
expected to move northward towards the central Gulf coast this
weekend resulting in increasing southeasterly winds and building
seas. Numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected during the
weekend and early next week.
