SPACE B.O.I. FORECAST
- Black Drum
WEATHER OVERVIEW: What a great week of weather we had this past week. If there was a fish you wanted to target, you could do it. The winds were low and the seas were clam. This week it will bounce around. It appears we will have our next cold front moving in Tuesday and Wednesday with north winds bringing cold weather with them. High temperatures both days will not get out of the 60’s. Thursday the wind will start to taper off and switch from north to ESE before returning to a south wind as we move into the weekend. This will bring warmer temperatures in the high 70’s and lower wind so the weather looks to be shaping up nicely as we move into the weekend.
