...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IN EFFECT UNTIL 10 AM EDT THIS MORNING...

Synopsis: High pressure will build into the mid-Atlantic region and remain in place through the rest of the week, with northeast winds at times increasing to cautionary or advisory levels. Small craft advisories to remain in effect today for the northern offshore waters. Slight improvement in winds is expected late this morning into the afternoon for the Tampa Bay and nearshore northern and central waters. Winds this evening will again rise to advisory levels through Thursday morning. As high pressure remains anchored to our north, periods of cautionary to borderlined advisory level winds will remain possible through the end of the week. An approaching area of low pressure will result in a southeasterly wind shift this weekend and a weakening pressure gradient, which should allow winds to decrease.
