Up some maybe --- Tropical swell possibly building some on Mon (8/25). Easterly windswell builds some too.  Beyond the models suggest the tropical wave moving into the Gulf of Mexico and building.  Additional 15 kts trades to build from well out at sea into and over the Virgin Islands up into the Bahamas.  Something to monitor.
