next 6-8 hours  sw winds 5 to 10 kt early...becoming s 10 kt. seas 2 ft.  
Marine Discussion:
today...the coastal waters will remain under the influence of the bermuda-azores high and a fairly weak anticyclonic gradient. even with sea breeze circulations this afternoon...winds will average no more than 10 or 12 kt and seas will hold around 2 or 3 ft. the main near term marine concern will be the potential for waterspouts to develop through late morning along a persistent cumulus line currently stretching northeast to southwest offshore. have issued a marine weather statement to address this potential through noon. mariners are urged to navigate with extra caution due to heavy boating traffic today. tonight...little change in the synoptic pattern with the western extension of the sub-tropical high anchored right across the area. light nocturnal jetting will bump winds up to 15 kt for several hours as direction become more south to the southwest through the night. isolated showers and thunderstorms will again occur during the late evening and after midnight. tuesday through friday...overall the pattern will generally remain the same as high pressure to the east results in a persistent south to southwest flow. winds are expected to be less than 15 kt for the most part...with periods of slightly stronger flow possible with the afternoon sea breeze and nocturnal surges. seas will be 1-3 ft...highest beyond 20 nm. the weak pressure pattern and light wind field in place each morning could produce an environment supportive of the development of waterspouts through mid week. &&
