SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
824 PM EST Mon Dec 11 2017

.SYNOPSIS...A deepening low pressure system near the Great Lakes will
drag a cold front across our region on Tuesday. While this front will
be much drier than the previous one, gusty winds and high seas will
create hazardous boating conditions across the Eastern Gulf of
Mexico. For this reason, a Small Craft Advisory will go in effect
by late tomorrow morning... High pressure will build back in
Wednesday before another front approaches the area on Friday.
