Beach & Gulf Forecast thru Jul 24

Moderate onshore winds today have created slightly higher seas than expected...so did bump up seas about 1 foot across the board from our local hi-res model.

Winds and seas will diminish a bit back to more typical summertime levels on Sunday and Monday...before becoming moderate again out of the west by the end of the week...as the surface pressure pattern increases slightly.

Forecast as of 4:37 am EDT on July 20, 2013
