SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
351 AM EDT Sun Jun 25 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
Surface high pressure from the Atlantic extending west
across the central Florida peninsula and into the eastern Gulf will
maintain a southeast wind flow from Bonita Beach north to Tarpon
Springs, with a southwest to west flow from Tarpon Springs north to
the Suwannee River during the next several days, with a weak pressure
pattern supporting an enhanced onshore sea breeze component
developing along the coast each afternoon. Scattered showers and
thunderstorms will develop over the land area each afternoon, with
the storms then moving west into the Gulf waters each evening. Wind
and seas will be higher near thunderstorms, otherwise no headlines
are expected.
