  Wednesday: 1-3 feet in NE swell
Wednesday: 1-3 feet in NE swell.

Buoys off Canaveral continue to show small NE swell. Check the reports. Looks to be small but the wind offshore. So could be fun at small wave spots.

Looks like we will see a slightly bigger NE swell into the 3 day weekend. The storm that was called Tropical Cyclone 10 is currently spinning off the Northeast states. Checking the buoys up there and the ocean is being churned up.

Wave models shows NE swell filling on Friday and lasting through Monday. Size for now looks to be around 2-3 feet and tapering off into later in the weekend. However, it may be a tad bigger. Virtual buoys keep it small. However, there may be a period of time that is slightly bigger from the main pulse of the NE swell.

Long range models shows after the 3 day weekend it drops off in size back to typical summer time conditions. That system spinning off the Cape Verde Islands shows to trek across the Atlantic and possible be a swell maker for us the following weekend. Too far away in space and time to make a prediction. But, keep an eye on this system. NHC says great chance to turn into a Hurricane.

Super small Wednesday and waiting to see what we get for the 3 day weekend. We should see something from the NE.

Next update Friday morning.
