Winds today should increase into the 15 to 20 knot range from the

north to northeast behind the passing of a cold front. Northeast

winds will continue into Friday and decrease Friday night. Southerly

winds develop late Saturday into Sunday but really do not increase

until Monday. This may delay the onset of sea fog developing which

no one will complain about. Sea fog could develop as early as Sunday

but may not do so until Monday when dewpoints reach the mid/upper

60s over the colder shelf waters of the Gulf.
