 Gale Warning
   AMZ400-222215-  Synopsis for Altamaha Sound GA to Flagler Beach FL out to 60 nm-  915 AM EST Wed Jan 22 2020      .SYNOPSIS...  Low pressure strengthening just northeast of the Bahamas will  pivot eastward this afternoon as arctic high pressure moves  eastward and reaches the Mid-Atlantic coast by Thursday morning.  Strong northerly winds with frequent Gale Force gusts today will  gradually weaken overnight as a coastal trough develops over the  near shore waters, which will generate scattered showers through  Thursday. Winds will shift to northeasterly on Thursday as the  coastal trough moves onshore and high pressure gradually weakens  over coastal New England. Meanwhile, weak low pressure developing  over the lower Mississippi Valley on Thursday will shift north-  northeastward through the Tennessee and Ohio Valleys on Friday,  dragging a cold front across our waters on Friday afternoon and  evening. High pressure will then build into our region from the  west this weekend, with offshore winds expected in the wake of the  frontal passage. Seas will remain elevated over the offshore  waters through Saturday before gradually subsiding late in the  weekend.    .GULF STREAM...    The approximate location of the west wall of the Gulf Stream as of  Jan 20, 2020 at 1200 UTC...    63 nautical miles east of Flagler Beach.  68 nautical miles east of Saint Augustine Beach.  76 nautical miles east of Jacksonville Beach.  89 nautical miles east southeast of St Simons Island.    This data courtesy of the Naval Oceanographic Office.      $$
