Beach & Marine Forecast thru Feb 14

Winds are expected to increase tonight to advisory levels as a storm system moves across the Mississippi River valley.

These unsettled conditions are expected to continue into Monday when a frontal boundary moves into the marine area.

As the boundary stalls on Monday evening...winds will diminish.

Though stormy conditions are expected through midweek...the next increase in winds and seas is not expected to occur until late in the period when a stronger frontal boundary moves through the marine area.

Forecast as of 3:41 PM EST on February 9, 2013
