Friday as broad low pressure moves into the southern Gulf of 
Mexico. This low is expected to move northward towards the central
Gulf coast this weekend resulting in increasing southeasterly 
winds and building seas. Scattered to numerous showers and 
thunderstorms are expected during the weekend and early next week.
