Beach & Marine Forecast thru May 1

The next several days will generally feature an east to southeasterly flow regime which will result in nocturnal surges over our Gulf of Mexico waters each night.

For the most part...these surges are forecast to be weak and remain below cautionary levels.

However...small craft operators should pay close attention to the changing forecast as even a slight increase would result in potentially hazardous winds.
