June grass update for Walton County 6/16/12:AM
5-8 on the June Grass Grossness Index.
The wind is coming from the northeast and the waves are coming from the southeast (don’t ask me how that works). The June Grass is pretty concentrated in some areas and not as much in others.
The water is warm and it’s nice and sunny. It might be a good day for a little surfing or boogie boarding, but probably not SUP or kayaking, due to the wind pushing offshore, which can make it easy to capsize and hard to return to the beach. There was quite a lot of fish activity just off the beach including bait balls and larger fish jumping.
At the time this report was made the beach flags were yellow and purple, but check them again before you head to the beach.
If there isn’t a current June Grass report up on this site I suggest checking the link to local beach cams on the left side of this page. They can often give you an idea of what the water is like. It is also important to “Know Before You Go” and check local beach flags. They are updated twice daily at 9:30am and 1:30pm.
PLEASE ENJOY THE BEACH RESPONSIBLY!
