Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico

957 AM EST Thu Feb 2 2023



.SYNOPSIS...Low pressure over the NW Gulf will move to the 

Carolinas through tonight. A trailing cold front will sweep across

the Gulf through Fri night. Winds to gale force and very rough 

seas will follow the front over the far SW Gulf off the coast of 

Veracruz starting early Fri morning and persist through the 

remainder of the day. Fresh to strong N winds and moderate to 

rough seas will follow elsewhere through Fri. Winds and seas will 

diminish from west to east through Sat night across the Gulf as 

high pressure builds in the wake of the front. Looking ahead, 

expect fresh S return flow across the NW Gulf on Mon.
