SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
1011 AM EDT Wed Jul 26 2017

.SYNOPSIS...Surface high pressure will persist from the Atlantic
west across the south central Florida peninsula and into the eastern
Gulf through the end of the week with light winds and slight seas
continuing. During the upcoming weekend a slight uptick in winds can
be expected across the central and northern waters as the gradient
tightens some as an amplifying upper level trough over the eastern
U.S. pushes an attendant cold front toward the northern Florida
peninsula. Wind and seas will be higher in the vicinity of
thunderstorms, otherwise no headlines are anticipated through the
period.
