Beach & Gulf Forecast thru Sep 17

Light winds and relatively low seas will prevail under a weak pressure pattern for the next couple of days.

By the end of the weekend...winds will increase between the eastern U.S. Surface ridge and a tropical system in the Bay of Campeche.

Seas will likely peak around 4 feet on Tuesday associated with southerly swell from the tropical depression.

However...with an easterly wind swell dominating by mid week...do not expect seas to subside rather quickly.
