The National Weather Service in Tallahassee issues wind, wave and weather forecasts for the coastal waters of the Gulf of Mexico from the Suwannee River to Destin, FL, out to 60 nautical miles from shore. We also raise Small Craft Advisories, Gale Warnings, and other marine flags as necessary. To learn more about the advisory and warning headlines in our forecasts, see our Marine Weather FAQ page.
