SYNOPSIS

Morning buoy observations are showing light winds and low seas.
However, satellite and radar imagery shows a cluster of showers
with some embedded thunder over southern Apalachee Bay. This
activity may produce a couple waterspouts and/or locally higher
waves as it pushes south over the next hour or so. Favorable
boating conditions are forecast today away from any thunderstorms.
See previous synopsis below:

Offshore winds are forecast through the next day or so as a weak
front continues to sag southward over the waters. Southwesterly
winds are forecast to return Monday with westerly to southwesterly
winds expected through much of the upcoming week. Periods of
showers and thunderstorms are expected across the waters each day
with locally higher winds and seas nearby these storms.
