SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
325 PM EDT Sun Jul 23 2017

.SYNOPSIS...The surface ridge will remain stretched out across south
Florida, inducing light south to southwest winds. The ridge will
gradually work its way northward through next week with light winds
continuing. Over the next couple of days, scattered to numerous
marine thunderstorms can be expected overnight and into the morning
and early afternoon hours before activity gradually moves inland.
Winds and seas will be locally enhanced in and around these
thunderstorms, and frequent lightning can also be expected.
Otherwise, no widespread marine hazards are anticipated.
