SYNOPSIS FOR THE SUWANNEE RIVER TO DESTIN OUT TO 60 NM
323 PM EDT SUN AUG 28 2016

.SYNOPSIS...EASTERLY WINDS WILL CONTINUE THROUGH EARLY THIS WEEK
WITH A RIDGE OF HIGH PRESSURE NORTH OF THE AREA. CONDITIONS FOR
THE MIDDLE AND END OF THE WEEK WILL DEPEND HEAVILY ON THE AREA OF
DISTURBED WEATHER ENTERING THE SOUTHEAST GULF OF MEXICO. THE
CURRENT THINKING IS THAT THIS SYSTEM WILL MOVE IN OUR GENERAL
DIRECTION DURING THE MIDDLE TO END OF THE WEEK WITH AN INCREASE IN
WINDS AND SEAS...BUT THERE IS STILL A LOT OF UNCERTAINTY WITH
THIS SYSTEM.
