.SYNOPSIS...Moderate to fresh SE winds will prevail over Gulf 
waters will continue today, and then become light SE to S just 
ahead of a cold front arriving on the Texas coast Sun evening. The
front is expected to reach from near Apalachicola Florida to the 
NW corner of the Yucatan Peninsula by Monday afternoon, from 
Sarasota Florida to NW Cuba by Tuesday afternoon. Strong high 
pressure will build southeastward across the area in the wake of 
the front could produce gale force winds over the SW Gulf on Mon 
and Mon night.
