Beach & Gulf Forecast with Tides thru Jan 29

Synopsis For The Suwannee River To Destin Out To 60 Nm

Winds are gradually turning around from the east to southeast across the marine area early this morning...and should begin to swing more quickly around to the southwest then west later this morning.

By later this afternoon...they are expected to continue to swing around to the west and increase to just below Small Craft Advisory levels out ahead of the next cold front...so will just use a cautionary headline at this time.

These elevated conditions will linger for a while into tonight before winds and seas weaken as winds shift back to the north overnight.
