Beach & Gulf Forecast thru Oct 16

With a weak surface pressure pattern expected to hold through the weekend...winds and seas will remain quite low.

By early next week a stronger ridge of high pressure is forecast to build in from the north.

This will cause winds and seas to increase back into the moderate range...but likely still below headline criteria.
