A cold front moving into the Gulf of Mexico will allow for gale force winds and elevated seas on Thursday.
A cold front will move offshore this evening causing strong northerly winds to overspread the Gulf of Mexico from west to east overnight. Strong northerly winds with gusts to 30-40 knots are expected for this advisory area. Seas will be 6-10 feet for much of the region, but could be as high as 12 feet across the southwestern portions of the region. Conditions should subside mid to late morning Thursday.
A Look Ahead
Snow showers will continue across portions of the Northeast as an area of low pressure and cold front move across the region. Light lake effect snow will continue across the eastern Great Lakes through the weekend. By early next week, an area of low pressure moving along the East Coast will bring light snow to the Appalachians.
