Beach & Gulf Forecast with Tides thru Jan 1

Forecast as of 3:28 am EST on December 28, 2013
Synopsis For The Suwannee River To Destin Out To 60 Nm

Winds and seas will steadily increase into Sunday ahead of a fast moving weather system ejecting across the area.

A surface low will move into the FL Panhandle late tonight, with trailing cold front advancing eastward tomorrow.

Easterly winds will increase to advisory criteria today, especially over the western legs, with winds strengthening and shifting to a southerly direction tonight across all legs.

Expect winds and seas will relax some Sunday as winds shift to offshore behind the front, but conditions will still warrant caution through the day Sunday.

A return to lighter winds and lower seas can be expected for the early part of next week.
