based on satellite imagery, weather observations, radar, and
meteorological analysis.

Based on 0000 UTC surface analysis and satellite imagery through

...SPECIAL FEATURES...

Gulf of Tehuantepec Gale Warning: A cold front will move into the
NW Gulf of Mexico tonight. The front will reach the Bay of
Campeche Fri night. Cool and denser air will funnel through the
Chivela pass into the Gulf of Tehuantepec tomorrow evening. Winds
will rapidly ramp up to near gale force Fri evening and further
to gale force later Fri night. The front will lose its push
Saturday, which will diminish winds funneling into the Gulf of
Tehuantepec. This will keep this gale force gap wind event brief
as winds are expected to diminish below gale force by Sat
afternoon.

...INTERTROPICAL CONVERGENCE ZONE/MONSOON TROUGH...

The ITCZ extends from 08N84W to 05N94W to 10N115W to beyond
11N140W. Scattered moderate convection is noted from 11N to 13N
west of 138W.

of California. Winds will diminish over this area early Saturday.

A cold front will push southward across Baja California Norte
into the Gulf of California this weekend. Associated large swell

coast of Baja California Norte.

OFFSHORE WATERS WITHIN 250 NM OF CENTRAL AMERICA, COLOMBIA, AND
WITHIN 750 NM OF ECUADOR...

of the ITCZ to 22N and west of 120W. NE swell propagating through
the area is supporting seas 8 ft or greater over much of the
area west of 120W. Seas associated with a fresh set of NW swell
over the NW waters is peaking near 14 ft. Seas will slowly
subside as the swell propagates southeast the next few days. A
cold front will move into the far northern waters Saturday. This
will usher in another set of northerly swell into the area, with
seas peaking near 14 ft Saturday night near 30N122W.
