Advisory for the Gulf of Mexico runs from Destin to Pascagoula, Miss.
The National Weather Service in Mobile issued a small craft advisory for the Gulf of Mexico from Destin to Pascagoula, Miss., early Sunday morning.
According to the advisory, seas are at a significant wave height rating, which is the average height of the highest one-third of the waves. Individual waves may be more than twice the significant wave height.
The weather service noted that a northwest air flow will increase Sunday into Monday in the wake of a cold front that will move across the marine area early Sunday morning. With that seas will build slightly as well, with bays and inland waterways becoming choppy to slightly rough.
NWC reported that winds and seas will subside Monday into midweek as light to occasionally moderate onshore flow redevelops across the marine area.
Small craft should exercise caution today, according to NWS. Winds will be from the west at 13 to 18 knots, increasing to 20 to 25 knots.
