Synopsis: Aside from showers and storms bringing locally higher winds and seas through the rest of the afternoon/evening, boating conditions will improve through the rest of the weekend. The main concern for mariners will lie with a tropical disturbance currently in the western Caribbean. This feature, regardless of development, will enter the southern Gulf of Mexico by Tuesday and slowly move northwest. A turn to the northeast is expected sometime mid week. While there is still considerable uncertainty in it's eventual path, winds and seas appear likely to rise to at least advisory levels by next week. Boaters should continue to monitor the latest Hurricane Center forecasts.
