Marine Zone Forecast


Synopsis: Relatively light northerly winds will veer easterly by the end of the weekend, while there may be some varying of the wind direction early next week, light winds should prevail through the first part of the week. A persistent northeasterly swell will be the main concern for our Atlantic waters, forecast to peak around 7-9 feet just north of the waters adjacent to Palm Beach county. Meanwhile, the rest of the East Coast could see seas around 3-5 feet associated with the swell. Winds and seas will begin increasing across both the Gulf and Atlantic waters around mid-week as a frontal system nears the region.

Gulf Stream Hazards... None through the weekend, but hazardous seas developing off the Palm Beach County coast early next week.
