Synopsis: A weak frontal boundary will stall across the southeastern Gulf of Mexico Sunday, with scattered showers and thunderstorms creating locally hazardous boating conditions across the waters. High pressure building in behind the front from the north is producing a tight pressure gradient, with cautionary to advisory level winds expected to last into Tuesday before winds subside through the middle part of the week. Tropical Storm Beta continues in the western Gulf of Mexico, generating swells that will travel into the coastal waters. Please see National Hurricane Center advisories for additional details.
