Synopsis For The Suwannee River To Destin Out To 60 Nm

High pressure to our north is resulting in a moderate easterly flow across the northeast Gulf of Mexico. The position of the high favors another easterly wind surge tonight into Thursday morning which is anticipated to reach solid cautionary levels. The high will shift eastward off the Atlantic Seaboard during the end of the week. Although the general flow will remain from the east into the start of the upcoming weekend...the high position after tonight will not favor the easterly surges to be as strong.

Small craft operators should exercise caution tonight
