Gulf Coast Surf report and Forecast
Friday: 

Gulfsters:  Flat. You may see an occasional shin high wave in the better spots.

Panhandle:  Knee high wind swell at 5 sec from the SW.  SSW winds in the mid teens keeping things disorganized.

Weekend:

Gulfsters: Small to flat in most spots.

Panhandle: Knee high conditions continue for Saturday but we should see a little bigger, longer period background swell fill in for Sunday.  The western most Panhandle will get the most out of it but it could be ridable in the Destin area with decent winds for most of the Panhandle so it should be worth checking out.  Keep an eye on the cams because there is still some disagreement on how far East the swell with make it.
Looking ahead:  

Gulfsters:  Small to flat through the mid-week.

Panhandle:  There may be a few leftovers in the water for Monday then we are back to smaller wind swell conditions for the mid-week.

Tropics and Hurricane Forecast
Today’s tropical forecast highlights three distinct systems of interest. Disturbance 1 (AL94), currently in the Western Caribbean, is projected to have a minimal chance of strengthening before it reaches South America, where it’s expected to weaken further over the weekend.
Disturbance 2 (AL95), on the other hand, is showing promising signs of intensifying into this season’s second named storm, Beryl. As it traverses the Caribbean Sea, it’s poised to escalate into a tropical storm, potentially producing strong winds and substantial rainfall across regions from San Juan to Cuba. However, its momentum is anticipated to wane as it approaches the Yucatán Peninsula, where it’s predicted to make landfall and dissipate.
 
Lastly, a new wave of energy emerging off the African coast could see some slight development over the coming week. Despite these activities, current models suggest that none of these systems pose a significant threat to Florida at this time.
