next 6-8 hours  sw winds 5 to 10 kt. seas 2 ft.  
Marine Discussion:
fairly weak sw flow today...then winds increase to 10-15 kt with some nocturnal surging tonight as the gradient tightens up. the area will remain between a weak atlantic ridge southeast of the area and an inland trough of low pressure into saturday. this will result in continued south- southwest winds of 15 kt or less. however...nocturnal jetting could increase winds upwards of 15-20 kt mainly over the outer georgia waters friday night. seas will be 3 ft or less into the first half of the weekend. a backdoor front is expected to drop through the area from the north late saturday and saturday night...with high pressure then building from the north through early next week. stronger northeast winds are possible behind the front and could very well result in small craft advisory conditions for winds and/or seas over portions of the coastal waters. there is also the possibility that a tropical system could turn well off the southeast coast and generate some swells over the coastal waters early next week. &&
