Marine Zone Forecast


Synopsis: The axis of Atlantic ridging will extend across our local waters through Thursday and will then shift eastward on Friday as broad low pressure moves into the southern Gulf of Mexico. This low is expected to move northward towards the central Gulf coast this weekend resulting in increasing southeasterly winds and building seas. Numerous showers and thunderstorms are expected during the weekend and early next week, with Small Craft Advisory conditions developing offshore on Saturday and near shore by Sunday.
