.SYNOPSIS...
The axis of Atlantic ridging will extend across our local waters 
Today and will then shift eastward on 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.
Numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected during the  weekend
and early next week.
