SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
715 PM EST Thu Nov 23 2017

.SYNOPSIS...
A weak area of low pressure moves east of the forecast waters
overnight...followed by high pressure slowly building into the
eastern Gulf of Mexico Friday and Friday Night. Interaction between
the high pressure and the front east of Florida will produce gusty
winds near cautionary level over the northern coastal waters
overnight through early Friday. As the high settles over northern
Florida by Saturday...winds decrease to 10 knots or less through the
weekend. No other marine issues are expected.
