...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM 8 PM THIS EVENING TO 2 AM EDT

Synopsis: With high pressure off to the NE, gusty ENE winds remain a possibility for coastal waters through the afternoon. As the land cools faster than the water overnight, this will help to enhance winds, leading to the fastest winds during the overnight hours. In response to these expected faster winds, a Small Craft Advisory has been issued for all coastal waters, including Tampa Bay but excluding Charlotte Harbor for tonight. However, conditions do meet cautionary levels for Charlotte Harbor. Winds subside some towards morning, bringing conditions back below advisory criteria, but conditions will have to be monitored for additional cautionary to advisory criteria over the next couple days. Otherwise, conditions are benign with high pressure in control.
