Synopsis for Keys coastal waters from Ocean Reef to Dry Tortugas
425 PM EDT Sun May 26 2024

.SYNOPSIS...Light to gentle breezes generally out of the southeast
to south will continue through tonight, and will periodically
become variable in direction due to the light nature and effects
of daytime heating. High pressure will gradually shift east
through Monday. This will allow for breezes to modestly surge
during the overnights tonight and Monday and lull each afternoon.
As this high slides further east on Tuesday, breezes will slacken
and will go light and variable at times. Freshening breezes will
return by the end of the week.
