SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
1008 AM EDT Mon Sep 25 2017

.SYNOPSIS...Light east to northeast flow will become more northerly
as high pressure lifts northwest of the region. As the gradient will
remain light, the seabreeze will allow winds to shift onshore near
the coast each afternoon. Dry conditions are expected much of the
coming week, with gradually increasing rain chances by the weekend.
No marine hazards are expected during this time.
