Marine Weather Discussion for the Gulf of Mexico, Caribbean Sea, and Tropical North Atlantic from 07N to 19N between 55W and 64W and the Southwest North Atlantic including the Bahamas


...GULF OF MEXICO...

Relatively weak high pressure extending from the Atlantic across the NE and north-central Gulf will change little through early next week. Moderate to fresh south-southeast winds will continue across the waters west of 90W through the period, while mainly light to gentle variable winds continue east of 90W. A mid-level low over the NW Gulf will support scattered to isolated showers through Sat night.


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

Fresh to strong east to southeast winds will pulse over the Gulf of Honduras at night through Tue. The areal coverage of fresh to strong trade winds in the south-central Caribbean will increase over the weekend and extend to the SW Caribbean by early next week as a tropical wave moves from the eastern to the central basin. East winds will begin to pulse to strong speeds over the Gulf of Honduras at night beginning on Mon.


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

A weak area of low pressure centered between the upper Florida Keys and the southeastern coast of Florida will continue to support scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms over the waters W of 72W the next few days. The low is forecast to move near or over Florida later today, then back offshore near the coast of east- central Florida over the weekend or early next week. Environmental conditions appear conducive for tropical cyclone development once the system moves back over the Atlantic waters. Otherwise, gentle to moderate southeasterly winds will continue across the area, except over most of the north-central and the eastern part of the northwest forecast waters where the low pressure is likely to bring fresh to strong winds Sun and Sun night and mainly fresh winds over the far northern waters of zone AMZ113 on Mon.
