GMZ800 Synopsis For The Coastal Waters From Bonita Beach To Suwannee River- 840 Pm Edt Fri Aug 18 2017
Synopsis..Surface high pressure will remain across the region through the weekend with light winds and slight seas. Winds are expected to increase some with easterly surges early next week as the pressure gradient tightens a bit between low pressure to the south and high pressure to the north. Otherwise, the primary marine concern will be daily scattered Thunderstorms which may produce dangerous lightning, locally stronger winds, and choppy seas.

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.
