...GULF OF MEXICO...

A frontal trough extending from Florida Bay to 26N90W to the 
central Bay of Campeche will gradually lose identity through 
tonight. A fresh E breeze setting across the northern Gulf 
waters will clock to the SE across the NW Gulf waters tonight 
and continue through Sat, then become light southerly flow just 
ahead of a cold front exiting the Tx coast Sun morning. The 
front will reach the central Gulf waters on Mon with fresh to 
locally strong N flow W of the front. 

...CARIBBEAN SEA AND TROPICAL N ATLANTIC FROM 07N TO 19N BETWEEN 
55W AND 64W... 

A tropical wave will continue W through the Central Caribbean 
today and tonight. A tropical wave will continue W through the E 
Caribbean through tonight and pass through the Central Caribbean 
waters on Fri and Sat. Fresh to locally strong E trades, with 
7-11 ft seas, are expected across the discussion area E of 74W 
today, with these conditions shifting W across the Central 
Caribbean on Fri, and then persisting well into the middle of 
next week.

...SW N ATLANTIC INCLUDING THE BAHAMAS...

A stationary front is analyzed from 31N65W to 31N70W to 24.5N80W.
A weak surface low will develop along the front near 30N73W this 
morning and move NE while dragging the front E again to a 
position from 31N59W to 29N66W to 24N75W on Fri, and from 29N55W 
to 27N65W on Sat, with the frontal segment W of 65W then 
diffuse. Fresh SE return sets up across the waters N of 23N W of
