SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
1011 AM EST Sun Nov 19 2017

.SYNOPSIS...A cold front pushes southeastward through the coastal
waters today and stalls south of the Florida Keys Monday... as high
pressure in Texas tracks to the Mid-Atlantic coast. The high
pressure moves offshore Tuesday and continues east...allowing the
front to lift north from the Keys. A low pressure area may form on
the front toward the end of the week...introducing some uncertainty
into later forecasts.
