Synopsis for the Suwannee River to Okaloosa-Walton county Line out
to 60 nm
225 AM EST Mon Jan 30 2023

.SYNOPSIS...

Muggy air and chilled nearshore shelf waters will lead to periods
of sea fog beginning tonight and lasting through Thursday.
A cold front will make a run towards the Gulf waters later
Tuesday and Tuesday night, but this feature appears to stall
around the coast. The next stronger cold front will arrive
Thursday night, which will be able to clear through the Gulf
waters by Friday. Thunderstorms will accompany it, as well as
cooler and drier air behind it. This will effectively put the
brakes on the sea fog while bringing a period of at least
exercise caution conditions Friday night.
