JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Offshore isn’t an option this year for the El Cheapo, it will be too windy. Expect north winds between 20-25mph out to 20 nautical miles. Seas in this same range will be between 4-6 feet with occasional 8 footers. The wave period will be 6 seconds.

The only lag in the winds will be between 6-9a.m. Inland waters will be choppy, and winds over land will be between 12-17 mph for most of the day.

Temperatures will be quite chilly, in the low to mid 40s for the morning hours. During the day we will only warm up into the upper 50s under mostly sunny skies.
