Sun Coast Spring Breakers

Perfect beach weather greeted spring break visitors to the Sun Coast this weekend. A refreshing breeze made the beach a comfortable place to get the summer tan started.

The UV index is 9 (very high) so be careful not to stay exposed for long. Warm gulf air ahead of an approaching mild front brought out locals and tourists alike. The S wind also pushed up some breakers for a few surfers. As the wind clocks around to the west and drops the surf may clean up a little, but onshore conditions prevail through Sunday.

Today is a better day for kite-boarding on the north end or bay side. Tomorrow look forward to 80°F, sunny, W to NW 10mph and water temperature 69°F; waves 2 – 4 feet, SW, period 6 secs.

For you boating people, small craft should exercise caution with some wind gusting to 30mph. High tide is at 5:37pm and sunset 7:40pm.

    I thought it was wishful thinking, but the waves did clean up bigger and better and the wind dropped Sunday, giving about 30 guys a day to remember.
    I’d love to get a surfcam on a building there.

    OHHHHHHH! It looks so inviting! We are waiting for summer here along the lakeshore. I was down to the lake today and we still have icebergs along the shore. Can’t wait for 80 degree weather here.
