SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
858 PM EST Thu Jan 18 2018

.SYNOPSIS...Winds and seas will remain calm through the remainder of the
week as high pressure dominates our weather pattern and
northeast/east winds prevail. Another cold front approaches
the area by the early part of next week and as high pressure
builds to the north and increases the pressure gradient,
headlines may be possible. The potential for sea fog will
also exist ahead of this front as winds veer more southerly
and dewpoints increase back into the 60s.
