Synopsis For The Suwannee River To Destin Out To 60 Nm

A developing low pressure system to the west of our area should lead to an increase in winds Sunday afternoon into Sunday night.

Winds of at least 15 knots seem likely...and there is some chance of advisory level winds of 20 knots or more prior to a cold front passage on Monday.

The cold front is likely to be accompanied by thunderstorms...some of which may be severe.

The winds will veer to the west or northwest and decrease Monday night...but the brief lull will be followed by a secondary cold front passage on Tuesday.

That will cause another increase in winds...with advisory conditions likely.
