Synopsis for the Suwannee River to Okaloosa-Walton County Line out to 60 nm
150 AM EST Sun Dec 17 2017

.SYNOPSIS...Winds will become more southerly today as a warm front
moves north across the Gulf waters into the southeast Untied
States. This will lead to an influx of moisture, when combined
with the cooler nearshore Gulf waters, will lead to a couple of
days of marine sea fog beginning tonight and continuing through
Wednesday. The next cold front passage is Wednesday with a brief
period of near advisory level winds. Wind speeds and sea heights
decrease Thursday into the next weekend.
