333 PM EST Sat Jan 25 2020

SYNOPSIS
A weak cold front extending from the Straits of
Florida to the Yucatan Channel will wash out tonight as another

pressure system moving off the Texas coast. The low and a trailing
cold front will move eastward into the SW Gulf Mon and weaken.
Looking ahead, another weak low pressure area will move into the
NW Gulf Tue night, drifting E-SE through Wed night, then
