SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
1027 AM EDT Mon May 20 2019

.SYNOPSIS...High pressure will continue to dominate our weather 
pattern through the week with dry conditions expected over the waters
with the exception of a shower/storm possible around bays and 
nearshore waters this evening. Winds will take an onshore westerly 
component during the afternoon as the sea breeze develops and pushes 
inland. Average winds in the lowest 10k feet will increase out of the
east by Wednesday into the weekend and this will help to keep the 
sea breeze pinned closer to the coast. Easterly surges will also 
begin Wednesday night, resulting in offshore winds approaching 
cautionary levels for several nights.
