SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
1025 AM EDT Thu Jun 22 2017

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure will continue to build into the Florida
peninsula through the afternoon and evening. High pressure will
remain over the region through early next week, with light south to
southeast winds shifting onshore near the coast each afternoon due to
the seabreeze. During this timeframe, the only marine concern will
be locally gusty winds and rough seas due to scattered marine
thunderstorms during the late afternoon and evening hours.
