Gulf coastal waters from Bonita Beach to the Suwannee River out 60 NM - GMZ800
344 AM EST Sat Jan 16 2021

Poor marine conditions are expected today due to strong northwest winds and rough seas. Small Craft Advisories exist for all waters, including the Bays. Winds will gradually weaken overnight as the pressure gradient slackens. Seas will lag somewhat with less than ideal conditions persisting through Sunday. High pressure builds into our north by Tuesday with winds shifting out of the east. Winds will be elevated, but will likely not warrant any headlines through late week.

...HAZARDOUS BOATING AND BEACH CONDITIONS TODAY...

Latest RAP model has a deep low over lower MI that slides to the lower Great Lakes today while high pressure in south TX slips out over the Gulf of Mexico. These two features will provide a stable and dry/cold northwesterly flow that increases during the day. While winds are currently modest they will be picking up after sunrise...resulting in hazardous conditions at the beaches and on area lakes. Advisories include high surf and a high rip current risk along with a caution headline for inland boaters. While dry air filters in there will be adequate amounts for some low clouds to stream onshore.

Marine
Strong storm system tracking east across the Great Lakes region and high pressure moving into the Gulf of Mexico from TX will keep a tight gradient across the waters with very robust winds and rough seas through tonight. The high pressure track across the Gulf Sunday then over FL to the Atlantic Monday with veering and diminishing winds.
