GMZ800 Synopsis For The Coastal Waters From Bonita Beach To Suwannee River- 1040 Am Est Wed Jan 17 2018
Synopsis..Strong winds and dangerous seas will expand across the eastern gulf of mexico during the day today in the wake of a powerful cold front. Winds of 20 to 25 knots with gale force gusts will be possible, with seas up to 8 to 9 feet offshore. Winds will gradually improve by late Thursday as high pressure slowly moves toward the area. From Friday into the weekend, high pressure will become centered north of the waters, with lighter winds and modest easterly wind surges perhaps leading to cautionary winds at times. Another front looks to approach the waters early next week with increasing potential for sea fog, and strong winds in the wake of the front.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
