Beach & Gulf Forecast with Tides thru Jul 24

A low pressure system off to our west will increase onshore winds slightly to the west of Apalachicola tonight...and a long fetch of southerly winds deep into the Gulf of Mexico will increase seas over our western coastal waters into the 2 to 4 foot range.

However...this will be below any headline levels...and further to the east...winds and seas will remain significantly lower.

By Sunday and beyond...a weaker pressure pattern more typical for summertime will return... resulting in light winds and low seas for the rest of the period.
