Detailed Forecast

IMPORTANT NOTICE TO MARINERS...MARINE FORECASTS ARE ISSUED AT LEAST FOUR TIMES A DAY. BOATERS ON EXTENDED TRIPS SHOULD ROUTINELY MONITOR SUBSEQUENT FORECAST ISSUANCES AND UPDATES FOR THE LATEST MARINE WEATHER INFORMATION. THE WAVE HEIGHTS ARE FORECAST AS SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT WHICH IS THE AVERAGE OF THE HIGHEST ONE-THIRD OF THE WAVES. THE HIGHEST WAVES MAY RARELY BE TWICE THE SIGNIFICANT WAVE HEIGHT. THE WINDS AND SEAS NEAR THUNDERSTORMS MAY BE HIGHER THAN FORECAST.

  • SynopsisWINDS AND SEAS WILL REMAIN LOW ACROSS THE EASTERN GULF OF MEXICO THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF THE WEEK. A GENERAL EASTERLY FLOW REGIME THROUGH TUESDAY WILL BE INTERRUPTED EACH AFTERNOON NEAR THE COAST BY SEA BREEZE DEVELOPMENT WHICH WILL TURN THE WINDS LOCALLY ONSHORE. WINDS BECOME MORE SOUTHERLY ON WEDNESDAY AS A COLD FRONT APPROACHES FROM THE NORTHWEST. THIS FRONT IS FORECAST TO PASS THROUGH THE FORECAST WATERS DURING THURSDAY OR THURSDAY NIGHT WITH A WIND SHIFT TO THE NORTH AND NORTHEAST. AHEAD OF THIS FRONT...THE POTENTIAL FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF AREAS OF SEA FOG WILL INCREASE. ALTHOUGH PATCHY SEA FOG IS POSSIBLE TODAY AND TUESDAY...IF SIGNIFICANT SEA FOG AREAS ARE GOING TO DEVELOP...THE MOST LIKELY TIME FRAME WILL BE TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY MORNING. THE PASSAGE OF THE COLD FRONT LATER THURSDAY WILL END THE SEA FOG THREAT.
