Synopsis for Jupiter Inlet to Ocean Reef FL out to 60 nm and for East
Cape Sable to Bonita Beach FL out to 60 nm-
934 PM EDT Sun Oct 20 2019

SYNOPSIS

High pressure is set to build over the area for the first part
of the week. As it does, a frontal system, which has been
bringing the active weather to the area for the last couple of
days, is forecast to be pushed back to the north. This should
allow for a mostly dry day tomorrow, with a few showers still
possible over the interior. The middle of the week should see
another cold front approaching the area. This front looks to
stall around Lake Okeechobee, allowing for rain chances to trend
upward from Tuesday through the weekend. This also will cause
seas to build to around 6 feet in the Atlantic waters of South
Florida from the middles of the week, into the weekend.


GULF STREAM HAZARDS
None.

The approximate location of the west wall of the Gulf Stream as of

  7 nautical miles southeast of Fowey Rocks.
