Beach & Gulf Forecast thru Jun 5

Winds and seas will gradually subside later today as a weak cold front approaches slowly from the northwest.

This front will stall across the coastal waters Sunday and Monday...then gradually dissipate later this week.

The weak pressure pattern will cause winds and seas to be low until mid week...when a low pressure system moving northeastward in the eastern Gulf of Mexico may cause an increase in winds and seas.

This low will be monitored for signs of tropical development...but the chance of this happening in the next few days is low.
