  Tuesday: 2-3 feet with glassy conditions
Tuesday: 2-3 feet with SW winds.

SW winds look to blow this morning and clean up the small surf.

Local wind looks to blow SW on Tuesday then switch from the North to NE into Wednesday.

Wednesday looks to be blown out sideshore chop but building swell into the evening.

Bigger surf looks to happen on Thursday. We get a lot of onshore winds and a low pressure system off the coast on Thursday. Surf looks to rapidly build to 3-5+ feet.

Another low pressure system looks to form off the coast of Florida next weekend. Thus, the local wind and surf forecast is difficult to guess. We should see some surf, but conditions may be blown out.

Next update Wednesday night.

Saturday: choppy 1-3 feet.

Wind looks to stay onshore the next few days. Sunday looks a little bigger around 2-4 feet with choppy conditions.

Early in the week looks to stay small and choppy.

  Thursday: small to flat
Thursday: small to flat.

It looks like the wind will turn onshore today and last through the weekend. This looks to bump the surf up to 1-2 feet and choppy conditions.

Maybe a little bigger for the weekend but don't expect much. Sunday looks bigger than Saturday. Persistent onshore winds look to build up a swell by then.

Early next week looks the same. 1-3 feet with choppy onshore wind conditions.

Long range forecast shows bigger surf towards the end of next week. Maybe some hope in the horizon!

Next update Saturday morning.

  Friday: small surf
Friday: small surf. Glassy morning with afternoon chop

There is a small NE long period swell showing on the buoys this Friday morning. Surf looks to be rideable with a long wait between sets. Check the reports for the best spots.

For Friday the wind looks to blow from the South to SE. This should chop it out in the afternoon.

Saturday shows SW winds in the morning. Hopefully that mystery NE long period swell lingers into Saturday morning. Should be fun if it does. It will probably be choppy in the afternoon with a South wind.

Sunday looks like more small lingering swell. Check the small wave spots!

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast.

We had a lot of surf for March. So far April looks the opposite.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Tuesday: small to barely rideable
Tuesday: small surf can be found. Check the reports.

I've been looking at the low pressure that is off Newfoundland. This system looks to send in a small NE long period swell. However, timing is difficult to determine. Probably later on in the week/weekend. Its a long way away but there are some NE winds up there. Thus, difficult to predict for but if a mystery swell shows up later on in the week...there ya' go...

Looks to stay on the small side the rest of the week with no significant swell makers in the long range forecast.

Next update Wednesday night.

  Friday: Big and choppy
Friday: big and choppy

Local winds look to blow hard SE on Friday. There is also a mix of NE long period swell. This equals big and choppy surf for Friday.

The local wind is forecast to switch from South to SW (offshore) for Saturday. This obviously will clean it up. Check the reports for Saturday. Should still have some size and with it cleaning up should be fun. However, wind forecast have been iffy lately. Check the wind reports!

Wind looks to switch from the NW into Sunday and the surf looks to drop.

Basically, big surf for Friday. Cleanup for Saturday but surf starts to drop in size. Sunday looks small with the NW winds. Early in the week surf looks to stay rideable but small.

Long range models shows another low pressure system move near Hatteras by mid-week. This system may kick back a NE long period swell later on in the week.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Thursday: Increasing surf
Thursday: Surf looks to pick up

I did a quick look. It looks like we will see strong SE winds for Thursday and Friday. Also, a NE long period swell is showing on the Canaveral buoy. This should pick the surf up but with choppy conditions.

wind is forecast to go offshore Saturday morning. Hopefully the long period swell lingers into then.

I'll take a better look at the long range forecast tonight.

Next update Thursday night.

  Tuesday: 2-3 feet Glassy conditions
Tuesday: 2-3 feet with glassy conditions.

Small rideable surf can be found. Strong offshore winds look to blow all day for Tuesday. Stronger NW winds in the afternoon looks to flatten any surf.

A low pressure system is currently forming off the Florida coast and looks to move up the coast as a Nor'easter. This system has the potential to kick back a NE long period swell later on in the week. Probably Thursday.

A cold front looks to swing in behind the low and provide strong North to NW winds into Wednesday. This looks to blow the surf down.

The local wind forecast looks to be very variable. One day strong offshores the next strong onshores. After Wednesday strong NW winds the wind looks to quickly shift to strong SE into Thursday and Friday. Another low pressure system may form off the coast. Thus, local wind forecast are iffy for this week.

Basically, keep an eye on the reports as the surf looks to change drastically with the rapidly changing weather. Long period swell for Thursday but with strong onshore winds.

Long range looks like we should see rideable surf into the weekend. Models shows even bigger surf for next week. But, that is a long way away.

Next update Wednesday night.

  Sunday: 2-3 feet with glassy conditions
Sunday: 2-3 feet glassy conditions.

Swell has dropped from Saturday but is still rideable and fun. There is a long wait between sets. Some set waves were 4 feet.

Looks to stay glassy all day. Surf looks to stay on the small side also.

Monday looks like cold front moves through with stronger North winds in the morning then NE in the afternoon.

We should see a NE wind swell into Monday afternoon and last into Tuesday.

Local wind forecast looks hard to predict for the next few days as a lot of weather on the charts.

With the front on Monday a low pressure system looks to form off the Florida coast on Tuesday. This system looks to expand as it moves up the coast as a Nor'easter. It looks like it may be off the coast enough to kick back a long period NE swell later on in the week.

Long range models have another low forming off the coast later on in the week as well. Thus, it looks like we will see a lot of changing weather the upcoming week. Will we get swell from these lows? More than likely but forecast looks to be challenging if these weather events happen.

Next update Monday night.

  Wednesday: surfs up
Wednesday: surfs up

We should see NE swell build into Wednesday and peak on Thursday. Then a slow decay into the weekend.

Size looks to be around 4-6 feet at the peak. Swell decay into the Friday and Saturday.

Local wind forecast calls for light onshore winds. But, that could change.

Go Surf!

I'm going to skip a few days as swell is in the bag.

Next update Friday night.

  Monday: small to flat
Monday: small to flat.

Not much swell for Monday.

A low pressure is looking to form off the coast of Florida and move NE and out to sea. We should see a NE ground swell from this system on Wednesday and peak on Thursday. Swell should last into the weekend but drop in size.

Keep an eye on the weather. Monday looks like we get strong offshores and some rain. Low forms off Jacksonville and move up East of Hatteras on Tuesday.

Strong West to NW winds for Tuesday with advancement of a cold front.

We should start to see NE angle swell into Wednesday. Swell looks like it may have some size to it. Possible 4-6 feet for Thursday.

Local wind forecast probably will change but right now it looks like light onshore winds for Wednesday and possible offshore Thursday.

Next update Tuesday night.

  Sunday: Small to flat
Sunday: small to flat.

There is a little wave to ride but don't expect much.

Models show a nice low pressure off the coast on Tuesday. Potential good swell.

I'm going to wait another day for the model runs to show it better to make a prediction.

Next update Monday morning.

Surf looks to stay small into the weekend.

I'll take a better look at it Friday night.

  Monday: Continued swell but smaller than weekend.
Monday: 2-4 feet in continued swell. NW winds.

Swell is still up into Monday. Buoys show swell. However, it is much smaller than Sunday.

I expect the swell to drop into Tuesday to 1-2 feet.

Not much swell into mid-week.

A strong low pressure system looks to form on the SE states on Thursday and lift North into New England. On previous weather models it showed it off the coast enough to send in a NE swell. However, on Monday model runs it shows it hugging the coast too much.

I still expect a swell from it however, extreme North angle swell so we may not see it. Hopefully the models are wrong and the low moved further out to sea.

A cold front looks to move through Florida on Thursday. We should see strong NW winds later in the week.

We should see a NE wind swell into next weekend at least. A high pressure system looks to provide onshore winds after the front passage.

Thus, looking at that big low pressure system form later in the week and seeing if it moves out to sea far enough.

Next update Tuesday night.
