Detailed Forecast


Synopsis: Easterly winds remain moderate across the coastal waters through much of the workweek due to persisting high pressure over the western Atlantic. Only a few showers are expected during the next couple of days. High pressure should expand into South Florida on Wednesday as Zeta moves over the Gulf of Mexico well to our west. This will lead to a slight decreasing trend in wind, seas and thunderstorm activity over the local waters.
