Beach & Gulf Forecast thru Oct 15

With a weak surface pressure pattern expected to hold over the next few days...winds and seas are expected to remain quite low.

By early next week...however...a stronger ridge of high pressure is forecast to build into our north...causing winds and seas to increase back into the moderate range...but likely still below headline criteria.
