Marine Forecast: Synopsis

Updated by the NWS 235 AM EST Mon Nov 30 2020
A cold front will move through the region this morning into early afternoon. Ahead of this front, strong showers and thunderstorms will quickly progress across the waters. Behind the front, breezy northwest winds will result small craft advisory conditions through at least Tuesday before drying out. Periodic light showers over the waters will remain possible through Tuesday. By Wednesday, easterly flow returns as surface high pressure builds to our north. Winds will remain elevated through the rest of the work week but should remain below advisory criteria. Source: FZUS52 KTBW NWS - Synopsis for Bonita Beach to Suwannee River, FL out 60 nm

Cold Front: Gulf of Mexico

Please see Special Features section above for details on the strong cold front crossing the basin, producing gales in the SW Gulf. Ahead of this front, fresh to locally strong S winds are occurring. This front will cross the basin today and move SE of the Gulf this evening. Strong N winds and building seas exist behind this front, and gales will develop this morning in the extreme SW Gulf and continue into Mon night. Winds and seas will decrease Tue. High pressure in the wake of the front will shift E Tue night through Wed night allowing for fresh to locally strong east to southeast winds basin-wide. Another cold front late in the week may bring gale conditions to the SW Gulf Fri.
