Chopping up for weekend – Tropical Depression set to become Hurricane Isaac


Locally in Vero Beach and Pepper Park area we are going to see the sea chopping up to 6-9 feet by Sunday and winds increasing.  If you are available to dive tomorrow or Thursday that still looks not too bad but I am not planning any dives myself for this weekend.  Waters look to be calming down Tuesday but after a few days of 5+ feet I would expect the viz to be terrible.

Keep an eye on the two as yet named storms off the Atlantic coast. Tropical Depression nine is set to be a storm tomorrow by 9 am and becoming a Hurricane Thursday until Sunday with wind gusts up to 105mph.  Weather predictions have skirting south of Dominican Republic and Haiti coming onshore Cuba on Sunday.

Be safe and watch the rip currents this weekend.
