SYNOPSIS
A high pressure ridge extending from the western

extending from SE Louisiana to just offshore of Brownsville, Texas
will stall tonight, then lift northward as a warm front across the
NW Gulf on Mon. Another cold front will move into the NW Gulf on
Tue and move across the basin through Wed night. Fresh to locally

evening as a thermal trough develops over the Yucatan Peninsula.
