.SYNOPSIS FOR PASCAGOULA TO ATCHAFALAYA RIVER OUT 60 NM...

High pressure is currently centered just north of the Bahamas and
extends westward across the Gulf of Mexico. Gradient flow around
that ridge will keep local winds from the south to southwestward
today. As a surface low tracks east across the Central Plains, the
local pressure gradient will tighten a bit. Winds will respond by
increasing to 15 to 20 knots for 12 hours or so, mainly overnight
tonight over the open waters, necessitating a Small Craft Exercise
Caution Headline for the coastal waters. A cold front associated
with the surface low will attempt to push into the Gulf but will
likely stall before doing so.
