MARINE...
WINDS AND SEAS ARE EXPECTED TO INCREASE QUICKLY FRIDAY NIGHT AND
SATURDAY AS TROPICAL DEPRESSION THREE...(WHICH WILL LIKELY BE A
TROPICAL STORM AT THAT TIME) EMERGES INTO THE SOUTHEAST GULF OF
MEXICO. ALTHOUGH WE RAN THE LOCAL SWAN USING A BLEND OF THE LATEST
AVAILABLE WIND GUIDANCE...ITS SIG WAVE HEIGHTS STILL APPEARS TOO
LOW. WE BUMPED UP THE WAVE HEIGHTS A FEW FEET TO MATCH BETTER WITH
THE NOAA WAVEWATCH MODEL AND ADJACENT OFFICES. WINDS AND SEAS WILL
DIMINISH SUNDAY AND MONDAY...WITH SEAS SLOWER TO DIMINISH THAN THE
WINDS. A PERIOD OF ADVISORY LEVEL SEAS IS POSSIBLE FRIDAY NIGHT
AND SATURDAY...ESPECIALLY OVER THE OUTER COASTAL WATERS.
