Synopsis For The Suwannee River To Destin Out To 60 Nm

Northeast or easterly flow along the base of surface high pressure will be moderately strong for the next couple of days.

Expect solid cautionary winds and possibly seas through Thursday night or Friday.

Winds may peak at advisory levels on Thursday...though it would likely be a low end advisory.

By late Friday...the winds should fall below headline levels as the ridge weakens and moves east in advance of an approaching cold front.

On Sunday...in the wake of the front...winds will increase once again to headline levels through the first part of next week.
