COASTAL FORECAST SATURDAY – Light to Moderate Chop on Coastal Lakes and Bays. Winds E at 10-15 kts. Seas 2-3 feet.
TROPICAL UPDATE – Gaston remains safely out to sea over the Central Atlantic. Meanwhile, the tropical wave we're tracking southeast of South Florida remains disorganized as it moves to the WNW. Little should change over the weekend. There’s a slight chance for some organization early next week as the system moves into the Eastern Gulf, but unfavorable winds aloft should limit potential. There’s a chance we won’t even see a tropical storm form, with the best rain chances over the Florida Peninsula. We’ll keep tracking the disturbance.
