June Grass Update

June grass update for Walton County 7/17/12:AM

on the June Grass Grossness Index. 

Ok, maybe I should rename it the sargassum report because we have loads of that and it is getting a bit whiffy down on the beach, but not awful. Yesterday, while stuck in traffic on the Destin bridge I saw an enormous raft of sargassum in the pass. I am curious to see what an afternoon of thunderstorms from the North does to the sargassum and June Grass situations.



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.
