Synopsis for Jupiter Inlet to Ocean Reef FL out to 60 nm and for East
Cape Sable to Bonita Beach FL out to 60 nm-
904 PM EDT Sat Jun 17 2017

.SYNOPSIS...Other than scattered showers and thunderstorms bringing locally
erratic winds and lightning, generally good boating conditions will
prevail through the rest of today. Sunday, small craft will likely
need to exercise caution across much of the local waters for
southeast winds of 15-20 knots, with these moderate winds continuing
into Tuesday, especially for the Gulf waters due to the possible
influence of a tropical disturbance. Beyond Tuesday, the flow will
begin to weaken as the Bermuda high strengthens bringing a return to
favorable boating conditions.

Seas will generally be 4 feet or less into early next week, but
may briefly exceed 4 feet at times Monday into Tuesday, again due
to the possible influence of a tropical disturbance. Showers and
thunderstorms will continue to be possible well into next week.

.GULF STREAM HAZARDS...None.

The approximate location of the west wall of the Gulf Stream as of
Jun 17, 2017 at 1200 UTC...

  9 nautical miles east of Fowey Rocks.
 16 nautical miles east of Port Everglades.
 13 nautical miles east northeast of Lake Worth.
 13 nautical miles east southeast of Jupiter Inlet.
