You may be able to find a small wave today but don't expect much.

Next update Monday night.

  Friday: small/flat
Friday: small/flat

Not much showing in the swell department.

Maybe a small wave for the weekend, but don't expect much and better maybe up in New Smyrna. A very small SE trade wind swell is showing off the Bahamas. Maybe that will provide something to ride up North.

No swells are in the long range forecast.

Next update Saturday morning.

  Wednesday: 1-3 feet in remnant swell
Wednesday: 1-3 feet. Glassy morning afternoon chop.

You may be able to catch a small wave into Wednesday. Bertha swell really dropped off from Tuesday. Check the reports for anything.

It looks to stay flat to barely rideable the next few days. No swells are in the forecast. However, we may see small longboard waves as the virtual buoy forecast shows small surf for the next few days. Friday and Saturday shows a small trade wind swell. So, maybe a small wave then.

Otherwise, no major swell makers are in the forecast.

Next update Thursday night.

  Tuesday: Bertha swell and offshore winds
Check the reports and cams in the morning. We should see long period SE swell with offshore winds today.

I have no guess on the size. But, swell will probably drop into Wednesday.

Next update late Tuesday night.

  Monday: 2-3 feet with occassional bigger sets
Monday: 2-3 feet.

Sunday saw a nice swell arrive. It was around 3-4 feet with some power. I expect this swell to last into Monday. This was from a localized low pressure system just East of the Bahamas.

We should see swell from Bertha come in late Monday and into Tuesday. Bertha looks to stay relatively weak and move up the coast the next few days. We should see rideable surf from Bertha. Swell size looks to be around 3-4 feet.

We also have a weak low pressure system currently off of Florida on Sunday. This system looks to stay weak and move out.

Local winds looks to be SW with afternoon onshore winds.

Check the reports for this swell the next few days. Bertha should send in a swell and the outer buoys do show swell. But, it may not be as big as one would think with a storm off the coast. Most of the wind fetch is pointed up to Hatteras. But, we should see 2-4+ feet surf into Tuesday. Wednesday will probably be much smaller. If Bertha does turn into a Hurricane there is a chance we see bigger surf from it. However, the National Hurricane Center is saying that it may not strengthen that much.

Next update Monday night.

Surf was fun on Sunday. Around 4 feet with some power. I'll take a look at Bertha's potential later tonight.

I'm taking another break and allow the tropics to heat up.

  Monday: 1-3 feet in small swell
Monday: 1-3 feet. Glassy morning, afternoon chop.

We had a small swell fill in over the weekend. It was pretty fun in a small wave kind of way.

I expect this small swell to last into Monday, but probably get smaller into Tuesday.

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast.

Next update Tuesday night.

  Sunday: small to barely rideable
Sunday: small to barely rideable.

It looks to stay on the small side the next few days.

Models shows the potential of a slight pick up for mid-week with the typical summer time SE trade wind swell. Wednesday and into the weekend looks like small waves to be found. 1-2 feet, maybe 3. Bigger North of the Cape.

Next update Tuesday morning.

  Tuesday: 2-3 feet with choppy conditions
Tuesday: 2-3 feet.

NHC has named the storm off our coast this Tuesday morning. Arthur is the name.

It is predicted to become hurricane strength by Thursday and move North up the coast.

We should see swell from this system for the next few days. However, the virtual buoys are not showing much. It really is dependent on Arthur turning into a Hurricane and thus getting the stronger NE winds pointed at Central Florida.

Currently the stronger winds are pointed away from Florida but we should see some small swell the next couple of days with the potential of bigger surf later on in the week.

It depends on how strong the storm gets of course. Also, if the Hurricane hugs the coast too much we may not see those NE winds pointed back at us. So, lets hope it stays off the coast far enough to kick back a NE swell into the weekend.

We should see offshore winds as the storm moves North and that will probably happen on Wednesday. The local wind may be too strong however and blow the swell down. However, it should fill in later on in the week with Arthur becomming a hurricane and we get stronger NE winds off of the Carolinas. 3 day weekend! Hopefully we get to see bigger swell for it.

Check the reports the next few days as we are bound to be surfing!

I'm going to take a break from the forecast. Next update Saturday morning.

  Monday: 1-2 feet with West winds. Slight increase in size into the afternoon.
Monday: 1-2 feet with West winds.

Get a good visual before driving a distance on Monday. Buoys show small swell and the wind is blowing West this Monday morning. But it may be too small to be worth it.

We should see a pick up in the size Monday afternoon and into Tuesday. However, local wind is too difficult to predict. Probably NW to North for Monday/Tuesday.

We are watching a low pressure system off the coast of North Florida this week. NHC says it has a good chance of developing into mid-week.

Models show it staying weak for the next couple of days then by Wednesday and Thursday spin up near Jacksonville. Longer range models show it zipping North up the coast into next weekend.

With that said, the next few days is difficult to predict. With a low so close the swell forecast can change depending on strength and location.

Virtual buoys don't show much swell for this week, however, they may be counting on this storm not developing. Lets hope they are wrong and we see a bigger swell this week!

Next update Tuesday morning.

  NHC update 2pm Sunday
TROPICAL WEATHER OUTLOOK
NWS NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER MIAMI FL
200 PM EDT SUN JUN 29 2014

For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

1. Satellite wind data and surface observations indicate that the low
pressure system located about 230 miles east of St. Augustine,
Florida, is gradually becoming better defined as it moves slowly
southward to southwestward. Although upper-level winds are only
marginally favorable, a tropical depression could still form during
the next day or two. However, the system's proximity to dry air
could inhibit significant development until environmental conditions
become more conducive by late Tuesday while the low meanders
offshore of the Florida east coast. The Air Force Reserve
reconnaissance aircraft that was scheduled to investigate the
disturbance this afternoon has been canceled, and the flight has
been rescheduled for Monday morning, if necessary.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...high...60 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...80 percent.
