SYNOPSIS:     

The Atlantic high-pressure system continues to generate a dry and stable region. The presence of Saharan dust will account for slightly hazy conditions and aid in limiting shower activity across the local area.
Furthermore, due to the slackening of the pressure gradient, winds and seas are gradually subsiding. Nevertheless, small craft operators and sea bathers should continue exercising caution.  

   

STATE OF THE SEA:  Moderate to rough      WAVES/SWELLS: 6 to 8 feet
