Beach driving conditions are awesome this morning and the waves are about 1-2ft but expected to build to 3ft. County workers are grading and prepping the beach entrance for spring break so you should be able to drive onto the beach in a 2wd vehicle on Saturday. Heavy traffic this weekend will likely tear up the entrance by Saturday evening but there will be plenty of fellow spring breakers in 4wd willing to help you out if you get stuck. We are predicted to have some rain this weekend so this should help out the driving conditions. The full moon will bring high tides on the beach in the late afternoon and evening so check the tide forecast before you go.
Don’t fear the weather forecast – Often it is raining inshore but sunny and beautiful on Matagorda Beach and over the bay.
There are plenty of events happening in Matagorda this weekend. Seafood Fest is in town at Fireman’s Hall from 11-5pm. There will be vendors, great seafood, bands and a lot of fun. Stop by and check it out. Sunset Yoga will happen on March 13 from 6:30-7:30pm at Jetty Park. Many of our restaurants, shops and bars are having bands and specials this week. Check out the Matagorda Chamber of Commerce Website for more info on where to eat, stay, play and shop in Matagorda.
