The settled weather that began off the mouth of the Mississippi River on Sunday will hold through Monday at the site of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Winds from the northwest and the west will blow at 15 to 20 knots. In this area of relatively light, variable ocean current, the winds will favor an eastward to southeastward drift of an uncontained crude oil.

Fair skies afford by high pressure will bring much sunshine.
