SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
342 AM EDT Sat Jun 24 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
No major marine hazards are expected through early next week. High
pressure will continue to dominate our area producing a south to
southeast flow with winds taking on a southwest and west component
during the afternoon/evening hours as the sea breeze forms and pushes
inland. While greatest rain chances will remain inland, typical
summertime boating precautions should still be exercised as any
thunderstorm can produce gusty winds and locally higher waves. Early
into the middle of next work week, a cold front will push south and
stall across our area shifting winds to more of a northeasterly
direction.
