SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
1013 AM EDT Fri Jun 23 2017

.SYNOPSIS...No major marine hazards are expected through early next
week. High pressure will continue to dominate our area - producing a
southeasterly flow with winds taking on a south and west component
during the afternoon/evening hours as the seabreeze 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. By
early into the middle of next work week, a cold front will push south
and stall across our area and shift winds to more of a northeasterly
direction.
