After  midnight, a strong surge of northeasterly winds will push  southward across the waters behind the front leading Small Craft  Advisory conditions through Friday. In the immediate wake of the  front occasional gusts to Gale will be possible offshore. Winds  and seas will begin to diminish Friday as the stalled cold front  to the south lifts back to the north as a warm front, turning  winds to the south. This stalled front will wiggle north and south  across the waters this weekend with waves of low pressure  tracking along it leading to unsettled weather.      .GULF STREAM...    The approximate location of the west wall of the Gulf Stream as of  Feb 27, 2024 at 1200 UTC...    56 nautical miles east northeast of Flagler Beach.  54 nautical miles east of Saint Augustine Beach.  61 nautical miles east of Jacksonville Beach.  75 nautical miles east southeast of St Simons Island.    This data courtesy of the Naval Oceanographic Office.      $$
