SYNOPSIS – All eyes this week will be on the development of the tropical cyclone south of us in the Gulf of Mexico. The ultimate track looks to remain to our southeast, but there could be some impacts across Southwest Georgia southward to the Gulf. Look for highs in the lower 90s for much of the week with lows in the lower 70s.

COASTAL FORECAST TUESDAY – Moderate Chop on Coastal Lakes and Bays. Winds E at 15 kts. Seas 4 feet.
TROPICAL UPDATE – Our main focus is on the tropical cyclone south of us in the Gulf of Mexico. Strengthening into a tropical storm is likely as a turn to the north, then northeast, is expected later in the week. The landfall area at this point ranges from Apalachicola to north of Tampa, with most of the impacts east and south of where the center moves inland. Be prepared should the track forecast change and be sure to pay close attention to the forecast this week.
