June grass update for Walton County July 4th, 2011, AM:
2 on the June Grass Grossness Index. The surf dumped a truckload of sargassum on the beach yesterday afternoon and there is quite a bit more in the water, but sargassum is better than June Grass any day. The June Grass has come back in a bit. The wind is ENE and the water is a little choppier, but it is still nice for swimming. There seems to be a slightly cooler current running west, parallel to the beach, that is a couple of meters wide. There are even more baitfish in the water today and some fishing boats seem to be having some luck just off-shore. Keep an eye on the weather today. Additionally, if you decide to visit Walton County this weekend there is a Burn Ban in effect. Please leave the fireworks, including sparklers, at home. Today should be a great day for picnics, beach sports, relaxing, and water sports.
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!
PLEASE ENJOY THE BEACH RESPONSIBLY!
