Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
335 PM EST Fri Feb 3 2023

SYNOPSIS
A cold front extending from near Tampa Bay, Florida
to the central Bay of Campeche will continue to move across the
Gulf through this evening. Strong gale force winds and very rough
seas are behind the front over the SW Gulf. Fresh to strong
northerly winds and rough seas are noted elsewhere in the wake
of the front. Winds and seas will begin to diminish from west to
east across the Gulf tonight into Sat, with winds below gale
force in the SW Gulf by early Sat morning. High pressure will
follow the front. Looking ahead, expect fresh to locally strong
SE to S return flow across the W Gulf on Mon and Tue, with
another cold front entering the region on Wed.
