Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
331 PM EST Sun Feb 5 2023

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure will continue building across the
basin from west to east. As the high moves E of the area, fresh 
to locally strong SE to S return flow will develop Mon night into 
Tue, with the strongest winds occurring in the western Gulf. 
Looking ahead, a cold front will enter the NW Gulf on Wed with 
strong to near-gale N winds possible behind it and quickly 
diminishing as the front reaches the central Gulf late Wed into 
early Thu.
