Hola Guillermo, or should we call you Bill? Tropical Storm Bill has been plowing its way through the western corridor of the Gulf of Mexico and setting up for a Texas to Midwest soaking over the rest of the week. Forming late Monday night Bill has steamed forward at a pace of 40-60 mph on a crash course to potentially bring back memories of Erin in 2007 as she picked up more strength when swooped up by strong hot winds in the central plains. Heavy downpours, flash flooding, and other potential hazards threaten citizens from Texas to Illinois through Friday. What does that mean for us on the First Coast? Well, beyond Bill causing havoc in the west Gulf areas, to the east we have a high pressure system breathing hot air our way with temps reaching 102 this week! Stay cool and stay hydrated, and if you need to get wet then bust out the small wave water sleds and go pick off a few microwaves, because thats just about all we’re going to get for the rest of the week. We do have some longer period swells in the water, just small, so pick your tides wisely and you could find a bump or two! Have faith in the season, it’s still early yet and we’ve already had a couple of named storms. Percentage-wise we will always see more activity in the Gulf this time of year, and beyond hiking to Texas to chase some waves, a quick trip to the Panhandle or Tampa Bay area is not that far off to catch a few early season swells. Father’s Day is coming up this weekend! Get an early jump on some of the Father’s Day sales going on at your favorite local surf shops and hook Dad up with some new gear!
