Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
343 PM EDT Tue Aug 14 2018

.SYNOPSIS...A nocturnal trough will develop during the evening 
hours over the Yucatan Peninsula before pushing offshore into the 
SW Gulf each night. A surge of fresh to occasionally strong NE to 
E winds will accompany the trough. The trough will become weaker 
on Thu and allow the winds to subside. Otherwise, high pressure 
ridging near the northern Gulf Coast will generally support light 
to moderate E to SE winds over the remainder of the basin through 
Sun night.
