Synopsis for the Gulf of Mexico
1032 PM EDT Wed May 25 2022

.SYNOPSIS...A squall line continues to move eastward over the 
northern and NE Gulf ahead of a cold front draped across the NW 
Gulf. The thunderstorms in this line could produce temporary 
gusty winds and rough seas through the early overnight hours. 
Ahead of the front, moderate to fresh southerly flow is found in
the central and eastern Gulf with gentle to moderate winds 
behind it. The cold front will continue pushing eastward through 
the northern basin over the next few days. As the front reaches 
the NE Gulf by Friday, the boundary will weaken. Showers and 
thunderstorms are expected to persist ahead of the front through 
this time. Winds will pulse to strong near the N coast of the 
Yucatan Peninsula into the early overnight hours. By the 
weekend, high pressure will settle over the basin, bringing 
quiescent conditions.
