Marine Zone Forecast


Synopsis: Surface high pressure will remain across the region with generally light winds and seas. Winds will turn onshore each afternoon with the seabreeze. Winds may increase a bit with easterly surges early next week as the pressure gradient tightens between low pressure to the south and high pressure to the north. Otherwise, the only marine concern will be scattered overnight and early morning thunderstorms which may lead to locally stronger winds and rougher seas.
