Beach & Gulf Forecast with Tides thru Jan 15

Forecast as of 3:54 am EST on January 11, 2014
Synopsis For The Suwannee River To Destin Out To 60 Nm

Sea fog is expected to continue over the cooler shelf waters east of Apalachicola through the morning and possibly into the afternoon.

Southerly winds will increase today ahead of an approaching cold front.

At this time...we expect winds and seas to peak mainly at cautionary levels...although a brief period of marginal advisory conditions cannot be ruled out.

Winds will shift to the west behind the front which will enter the western waters this morning an exit east of the area this evening.

Winds will then become northwest overnight possibly reaching cautionary levels once again.

High pressure will build east Sunday through Monday with winds becoming light and veering to onshore by Sunday night.

The next front will cross the waters Monday night into Tuesday morning.

Winds will once again reach cautionary to marginal advisory criteria ahead of and behind this boundary.

A third front will sweep quickly across the waters Tuesday night. Seas and offshore winds behind this front are likely to reach advisory levels.
