Marine Zone Forecast


Synopsis: High pressure centered east of the Bahamas will begin to break down tonight as a cold front races across the Gulf of Mexico, then into central Florida on Sunday. Winds will respond by veering to a gentle to moderate south-southwest breeze overnight, to west-southwest through the day on Sunday, then to the west-northwest Sunday night. The offshore flow will limit sea development, but also will generate shortening dominant wave periods. The front will reach stall over south of Florida on Monday. Hazardous marine conditions are expected early next week as a northerly wind surge develops behind the front.
