SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
855 PM EDT Tue Oct 23 2018

.SYNOPSIS...Surface high pressure north of the region and an inverted
surface trough offshore the Florida east coast will support northeast
to east winds over the Gulf waters through Wednesday night. During
Thursday night into Friday winds will become south to southwest with
Cautionary or Small Craft conditions developing, especially across
the northern Gulf waters as an area of low pressure moves east and
passes across the northeast Gulf waters. Winds and seas will remain
elevated Friday night into Saturday as they become northwest to north
as a trailing cold front sweeps south through the waters as deepening
low pressure moves rapidly northeastward up along the mid Atlantic
coast and surface high pressure builds in from the west through
Sunday.
