COASTAL WATERS FORECAST FOR FLORIDA
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE TAMPA BAY AREA - RUSKIN FL
319 PM EST WED FEB 25 2015

GULF COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO THE MOUTH OF THE
SUWANNEE RIVER OUT TO 60 NM.

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO MARINERS...MARINE FORECASTS ARE ISSUED AT LEAST
FOUR TIMES A DAY. BOATERS ON EXTENDED TRIPS SHOULD ROUTINELY MONITOR
SUBSEQUENT FORECAST ISSUANCES AND UPDATES FOR THE LATEST MARINE
WEATHER INFORMATION.

THE WAVE HEIGHTS ARE FORECAST AS SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT WHICH
IS THE AVERAGE OF THE HIGHEST ONE-THIRD OF THE WAVES.
THE HIGHEST WAVES MAY RARELY BE TWICE THE SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT.
THE WINDS AND SEAS NEAR THUNDERSTORMS MAY BE HIGHER THAN FORECAST.

GMZ800-260515-
SYNOPSIS FOR THE COASTAL WATERS FROM BONITA BEACH TO SUWANNEE RIVER-
319 PM EST WED FEB 25 2015

.SYNOPSIS...AREAS OF DENSE SEA FOG WILL CONTINUE TO IMPACT
PORTIONS OF THE COASTAL WATERS FROM THE TAMPA BAY AREA SOUTH ALONG
THE SOUTHWEST FLORIDA COAST AT LEAST THROUGH THE NIGHT. SOUTHERLY
FLOW WILL BECOME STRONG ACROSS PARTS OF THE REGION IN ADVANCE OF A
LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM AND COLD FRONT. THIS SYSTEM WILL BRING
WIDESPREAD SHOWERS AND A FEW THUNDERSTORMS TO THE REGION TONIGHT
AND THURSDAY. A FEW STORMS IN NORTHERN WATERS TONIGHT COULD BE
STRONG PRODUCING VERY GUSTY WINDS AND POSSIBLY AN ISOLATED
WATERSPOUT. WINDS WILL SHIFT NORTH BEHIND THE FRONT AND WILL
GRADUALLY TURN NORTHEAST AND INCREASE THROUGH FRIDAY DUE TO HIGH
PRESSURE BUILDING DOWN THE MID ATLANTIC COAST.
