SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
312 PM EST Wed Feb 21 2018

.SYNOPSIS...Strong high pressure will remain in place over the
western Atlantic and Florida through the end of the week with
southeast winds in the 10 to 15 knot range along with warm and dry
conditions continuing over the Gulf waters through the period. The
upper level high will weaken and shift west-southwest into the Gulf
during the upcoming weekend with the attendant surface high sinking
south to lie across the north-central waters. This will allow for
lighter winds with an onshore sea breeze component developing along
the coast each afternoon. Wind and seas should remain below 15 knots
and 5 feet with no headlines anticipated.
