Synopsis for the coastal waters from Bonita Beach to Suwannee River-
414 AM EDT Tue Aug 16 2022

.SYNOPSIS...
A westerly flow pattern is setting up across all coastal waters, and
remains until the weekend. In response, the best potential for
storms across coastal waters is favored in the late night through
mid-morning hours before any storms should transition inland.
Outside of storms, winds are expected to remain below 15kts, but
some choppier seas are possible in the afternoon each day through
the remainder of the work week with daily increases in wind speeds
during the afternoon hours.
