Synopsis for Keys coastal waters from Ocean Reef to Dry Tortugas
1031 PM EDT Mon Jun 1 2020

SYNOPSIS
An expansive high pressure system over the eastern
United States will shift southeastward tonight and Tuesday,
leading to freshening breezes across the coastal waters of the
Florida Keys. Meanwhile, a large area of low pressure over the
Yucatan Peninsula and the Bay of Campeche will drift slowly
northward over the next several days. As a result, breezes will
pulse considerably between gentle and fresh for most of the week.

The Approximate Shoreward Edge of the Gulf Stream as of
June 01...

35 NM South of Dry Tortugas Light...on Loggerhead Key.
25 NM South of Cosgrove Shoal Light...off the Marquesas Keys.
