Marine Forecast Discussion

Forecast: We start off the period with partly cloudy and dry conditions through the weekend. Both temperatures and humidity will be on the increase, and nearly ideal beach conditions are expected. The new week starts off hot once again, and a continuation of the dry weather found over the weekend. A cold front will approach the region later on Tuesday, and will be accompanied by scattered showers and thunderstorms late in the day and evening. That front should clear by early Wednesday and lead to partly cloudy skies and still very warm in its wake.

Tropical concerns:  Watching closely the remnants of the former Hurricane Beryl, now a weak wave, that will likely remain off the coast this weekend. Rough seas from it are not expected, but rip current risk will be elevated, especially Friday and Saturday.

Marine:  Latest observations show seas are currently 3-4 ft with a southeasterly swell, and a dominant period of 8-10 seconds. Forecast is for a wave heights to maintain at 2-3 foot levels through the weekend and early next week, and then increase to 3-5 feet with the front on approach Tuesday. With the front still in the vicinity on Wednesday, seas will remain at 2-4 feet. Marine interests should watch for rapidly changing conditions most notably on Tuesday late afternoon, evening, and parts of Tuesday overnight with scattered thunderstorms likely ahead of the cold front. Any thunderstorm presence can provide rough seas, and you should consult and heed localized statements from the National Weather Service with regard to coastal marine advisories.
