Synopsis for the coastal waters from Bonita Beach to Suwannee River
813 PM EST Thu Feb 22 2024

SYNOPSIS

Winds will remain less than 15 knots and seas 2 feet or less through Friday. The trailing edge of a weak cold front moves through the eastern gulf waters on Friday producing a chance of showers and a stray thunderstorm. An uptick in winds and seas can also be expected in the vicinity of this front with SCEC winds around 15-20 knots and seas building up to 3-6 feet. The front pushes east of the area by early Saturday with clearing conditions expected and a slow improvement to winds and seas on Sunday and into next week as high pressure builds into the area.
