SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
819 PM EST Wed Feb 24 2021

SYNOPSIS

High pressure over the area will keep warm, dry, and otherwise
very pleasant boating conditions for the next several days.
Strengthening surface high over the Atlantic will lead to an
increase in southeasterly winds by the weekend. However, these
winds are still expected to remain just below cautionary
headline thresholds, so no hazards are anticipated into early
next week.
