Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
1015 PM EDT Sun Sep 22 2019

SYNOPSIS
The pressure gradient between high pressure to the
north and lower pressure associated with a diminishing stationary
front to the south will weaken as the high spreads southward and
the front dissipates for the start of the week. Thus, winds and
seas will gradually lessen into Monday. Overall high pressure
will dominate through much of the week.
