SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
249 PM EDT Thu Oct 19 2017

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure over the eastern United States will
maintain a tight gradient across the waters until the weekend when
the high slides out over the Atlantic. As a result the gradient will
relax...allowing winds to diminish and shift from northeasterly to
southeasterly by the start of next week. A cold front approaches from
the west early next week.
