Synopsis for the Suwannee River to Okaloosa-Walton County Line out to 60 nm
915 PM EDT Thu Jun 4 2020

.SYNOPSIS...
High pressure off the Southeast U.S. coast will maintain light
onshore flow across the waters through Friday. On Friday, Cristobal
will begin moving northward and is forecast to regain tropical storm
status as it emerges back into the southern Gulf of Mexico. The
storm will then track northward across the central Gulf of Mexico
over the weekend. Long-period swells generated by Cristobal will
begin arriving on Friday. Winds will begin to increase across the
local waters Friday night with small craft advisory conditions
likely by Saturday and continuing into Sunday. Cristobal`s wind
field is expected to expand and tropical storm force winds cannot be
ruled out over the marine area. More favorable winds and seas will
return by Monday.
