SYNOPSIS

Shower and thunderstorm activity is currently moving across the
offshore waters along the Florida Panhandle. This coverage is
expected to continue into early afternoon prior to a cold front
moving through the region by the evening. Ahead of the cold front
this morning, coastal marine fog is expected to develop along all
near shore waters. A marine dense fog advisory has been issued
for visibilities being reduced to lower than 1 mile across all
near shore waters. As the aforementioned front moves through, an
increased pressure gradient across all waters is expected to lead
to small craft advisory conditions. These advisory level winds and
seas are expected to remain through Thursday afternoon.
Cautionary conditions are expected through the remainder of the
work week.
