  Thursday: small/flat
Thursday: small/flat

Not much swell showing for the next couple days.

We may see something for the weekend. However, looks like some weather coming through late Sunday. Maybe a small NE swell Sunday and virtual buoys show a small NE long period swell for Monday and Tuesday. This is from a weak low off of Newfoundland. It didn't have much NE winds pointed back at us, so the swell may be pretty small and inconsistent.

Strong cold front looks to swing through Florida on Sunday. Probably in the afternoon. We should see offshore winds late Sunday and early next week. So if that NE long period swell shows it may be fun.

A big low pressure system looks be associated with this cold front. It looks to spin up on top of the SE states late weekend and near Hatteras on Monday. We probably won't see a swell from this system as it looks to stay inland as it moves up the coast.

Small to flat until the weekend with the possibility of a small NE ground swell.

Next update Saturday morning.

Tuesday: 1-3 feet.

Still some small waves today but much smaller than past few days.

It looks to stay small/barely-rideable the next few days and into the weekend.

Looking at possible swell for late weekend but nothing definitive.

Next update Wednesday night.

  Friday: new long period swell
Friday: new long period swell

Looks like we sill see a new long period swell fill in for Friday. A broad low pressure system is currently spinning between bermuda and the caribbean. This swell looks to go through the weekend.

Swell size looks to go up into Saturday. The buoys East of the Bahamas really shows an increase in East swell this Friday morning. Thus, that should fill in for the weekend.

Local wind forecast calls for onshore wind for the weekend. However, the local wind forecast has been off all week. We have seen mostly calm wind for the past few days where the models have been showing onshore. Oh well, that is in our favor and I hope the wind stays calm into the weekend. However, check the real time wind. It is forecast to pick up onshore the next few days.

  Wednesday: 2-4 feet
Wednesday: 2-4 feet.

Tide was too deep this morning but looks to improve with dropping tide.

The local wind forecast was wrong for mid-week. The wind has been calm to light the past couple of days.

Surf looks to stay around he same size the next couple of days. Models show bigger surf for the weekend. Looks like onshore wind comes with it. I'll take a better look at it next forecast.

Next update Thursday night.

NE winds on Monday eventually turning East and SE by mid to late week.

Surf is up. So is the wind.

Maybe the winds will lighten up some later on in the week.

  Saturday small to flat
Saturday: small to flat

A cold front is moving through Florida Saturday. Looks like we will see strong North winds into Sunday then veering NE into Monday. We should see an uptick in swell with this front. An associated low pressure system looks to turn into a Nor'easter as it moves up the coast.

Bigger surf late Sunday and into early next week. Probably around 3-5+ feet with choppy conditions.

Local wind forecast looks to stay onshore all of next week and eventually veer from the SE.

Long range models show swell all of next week around 3-5 feet. Also, possibly strong low pressure system forming somewhere in the Bermuda Triangle. This system is showing in the long range swell models to send swell next weekend.

New swell late Sunday and into all of next week. Mostly onshore winds with choppy conditions. Hopefully we some lighter winds towards mid-week.

Next update Sunday night.

Doesn't look like much of anything the next few days and into the weekend. Strong cold front looks to move through Florida late weekend. Strong onshore winds and possible low pressure off the coast early next week. Looks like bigger surf starting late Sunday and especially Monday but with strong onshore winds making it choppy.

Saturday: small/flat

Not much swell showing for Saturday.

Looks to stay on the small side for the weekend. Small SE swell develops on Sunday and into Monday. Local wind looks to blow from the SE late weekend. By Tuesday the wind may go calm with remaining wind swell.

Not much of anything for the upcoming week. However, super long range models shows a very strong low pressure system (Nor'Easter) off of hatteras next weekend. Something to keep an eye on!

  Monday: Continued 2-3 feet with choppy conditions
Monday: 2-3 feet chop with East wind.

Looks like we have continued wind swell into Monday. Local wind looks to blow onshore all day. Tuesday looks like the wind may die or shift South or SW. Small swell looks to remain but probably drop a foot.

Mid-week looks like small conditions with a strong cold front moving through Thursday night.

Northerly winds Friday veering from the NE to E, then SE through the weekend. Probably stay on the small side as it looks to be all wind swell.

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast.

  Wednesday: Surf has picked up. Local wind a factor
Wednesday: 3-4 feet in NE swell.

Local wind is difficult to predict next couple days. Small swell showed up Tuesday evening.

Check the winds. Suppose to be stronger North winds Wednesday but who knows.

Swell looks to last the next few days. Wind eventually looks to turn East-SE into the weekend. This should keep us in rideable waves for the Christmas weekend.

Next update Wednesday night.

  Monday: 1-2 feet in small waves
Monday: 1-2 feet.

Looks to stay on the small side the next few days. A north wind looks to develop Tuesday afternoon and into Wednesday. It may turn NE Wednesday afternoon which would help the swell size.

It does look like we will see a pick up of onshore wind swell for mid-week. Local wind forecast look difficult but we may see calm winds on Thursday before it picking up from the East-SE into the weekend.

No major swell makers are in the forecast but we should see rideable waves mid-week and into the weekend.
