Synopsis for Altamaha Sound GA to Flagler Beach FL out to 60 nm-
913 PM EDT Mon Aug 13 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
A weak frontal boundary just north of the Georgia waters will 
gradually dissipate by midweek as the axis of Atlantic high pressure
slowly lifts northward to a position 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.
