Synopsis for Altamaha Sound GA to Flagler Beach FL out to 60 nm
747 PM EDT Wed Jun 12 2024

SYNOPSIS

A weak tropical low will shift offshore this evening and slowly organize offshore of the southeast coast through the rest of this week. See the latest NHC outlook for details on the low. High pressure will remain to the north through this evening and keep breezy east to northeast winds over the local waters with showers and and perhaps an isolated thunderstorm spreading northward tonight from the northeast florida waters into the Georgia waters. A stalled front over the waters will allow for showers and thunderstorms over the waters through Friday. Stronger high pressure will build south from Eastern great lakes on Saturday and push the frontal boundary south of the local waters with decreasing chances for showers and thunderstorms. Light easterly winds Saturday will become breezy on Sunday into early next week as the high builds down the eastern seaboard and then shifts northeast of the region next week.
