 Synopsis for Keys coastal waters from Ocean Reef to Dry Tortugas
 1030 AM EST Sat Feb 4 2023
 
 
 .SYNOPSIS...Strong northeast to east breezes will prevail across
 the Keys coastal waters this afternoon and this evening, as
 strong high pressure moves offshore from the Mid Atlantic states.
 Easterly breezes will begin to slacken late tonight, then become
 southeast and weaken further on Sunday as the high moves further
 offshore. After a short period of light to gentle breezes Sunday
 night into Monday, easterly breezes will quickly freshen once
 again Monday evening and remain fresh to strong through midweek,
 due to another high pressure building into the southeastern United
 States.
