SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
403 AM EDT MON MAY 30 2016

SYNOPSIS
WINDS WILL REMAIN OUT OF THE NORTH THROUGH NORTHWEST
UNTIL MID WEEK AS HIGH PRESSURE SETS UP OVER THE NORTHERN GULF OF
MEXICO. ON THURSDAY, THE HIGH SHIFTS EAST AND WILL CAUSE A SHIFT IN
THE WINDS TO A MORE EASTERLY DIRECTION. MOST OF THE THUNDERSTORM
ACTIVITY THROUGH THE WEEK WILL REMAIN OVER LAND, BUT CAN'T RULE OUT
A STRAY STORM LATE IN THE AFTERNOON PRIMARILY ALONG THE COASTLINE.
SO WITH THE EXCEPTION OF GUSTY WINDS IN THE VICINITY OF
THUNDERSTORMS, NO OTHER HAZARDS ARE EXPECTED THROUGH THE PERIOD.
