SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
1008 AM EDT Thu Oct 19 2017

.SYNOPSIS...Strong high pressure to the north will maintain
persistent northeast winds and gusty at times...these increase into
Small Craft Advisory range tonight. By the end of this weekend,
winds should begin to relax some as high pressure slides off to our
east and winds veer to a more southerly direction. A cold front will
then approach the area early in the work week with the potential for
widespread showers and storms, and high winds and seas by mid week
behind the front.
