Your Marine and Surf forecast for Sunday:
In the tropics: no new development is expected in the next five days.
For surfers, the surfcast will shift to flat as wave hits are less than 1 foot. The rip current is low, but it is always best to swim close to a lifeguard.
The sea surface temperatures range from low 70s to the low 80s making it a refreshing escape from the heat.
Though if you do go out to the beach or tan by the pool, the UV index remains extreme, so don’t forget to reapply sunscreen.
