.SYNOPSIS...

Easterly winds and seas will increase to potentially cautionary
levels this weekend as Hurricane Maria moves up the Gulf Stream and
increases the pressure gradient between it and the large area of
high pressure across much of the southeastern United States. Winds
of 15 to 20 knots will be common out of the east Friday evening
through Sunday evening, with seas generally in the 2 to 3 foot
range. Winds and seas will calm next week.
