SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
936 AM EDT Wed Aug 23 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
Generally light winds and seas will continue into the weekend. A
weak tropical wave will linger across the far eastern Gulf of Mexico,
eventually moving across Florida and into the Atlantic over the
weekend. This will generate greater coverage of showers and storms
than would be typical, but winds are generally expected to remain
light. Winds may increase over the northern waters early next week as
the gradient tightens between a front to the north and the remnant
low as it lifts to the northeast. Still, winds generally look to
remain below 15 knots, and the only marine hazard will be locally
stronger winds and rougher seas with thunderstorms.
