.SYNOPSIS...
A weak frontal boundary remains to the north, and Atlantic high 
pressure will slowly lift northward across the northeast Florida 
waters. Prevailing south southwesterly winds will weaken by 
midweek, allowing for stronger sea breezes to develop each 
afternoon near the coast. Atlantic high pressure will then sink 
southward during the weekend, resulting in prevailing offshore 
winds by late in the weekend.
