I might hit Zion later in the day,because it seems stronger wind will kick in late in the day and you gonna get kick out from keegs after 6pm :|

That said,Im not big believer in southerly flow for waukegan(or zion) in this time of a year..usually its week and it might be week!

If it fills in after work I'll stop by god's country for some shore break fun. If it's not cranking 15+ just not worth it. Hope it goes big sw on sat. Maybe pop my wolf lake cherry.
