Wave Watch: Cold front leaves behind breezy winds and clouds for Friday


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – Marine conditions can change quickly across the Tampa Bay area. So 8 On Your Side’s meteorologist Amanda Holly is tracking your Wave Watch for Tampa Bay, Coastal Pinellas, Suncoast and the Nature Coast.

Friday: A cold front will be well to our south by Friday morning but winds will stay breezy as the cooler and drier air filters in. This will create a good amount of chop on the bay and offshore waters. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect through Noon Friday before winds begin to calm down. Clouds will stick around through most of the day.
