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.
