  Monday/Tuesday: 2-3 feet in choppy SE wind swell
Monday/Tuesday: 2-3 feet in choppy wind swell.

Surf looks to be choppy rideable for the next couple of days.

Wind slacks off mid-week but will there be enough swell to stay rideable? Probably 1-2 feet by Wednesday.

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Saturday: small, 1-2 feet.
Saturday: small, 1-2 feet. Wind is blowing offshore this morning so expect glassy conditions. However, super small waves. Check lower tide for better conditions into the afternoon.

Not much of any major swell events look to happen this week. NE winds develop Sunday afternoon and veery SE by Tuesday. This may bump up the surf to 2-3 feet and choppy wind swell.

Next update Sunday night.

  Thursday/Friday: SE wind swell with choppy conditions
Thursday/Friday: SE winds look to keep us in small rideable and choppy surf around 2-3 feet.

Saturday the wind is forecast to blow offshore. This could offer a quick clean up of the surf, but also knock the size down.

Thus, small choppy surf for the next couple of days. Weekend looks like small-scale surf.

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast. But, we may see more small SE wind chop next week.

Next update Saturday morning.

  Monday: Big and choppy
Monday: Big and choppy.

Local wind forecast still calls for onshore wind all week but slowing down into Tuesday/Wednesday.

Wind looks to blow hard Monday, then veer from the E-SE into mid-week.

Swell size looks to taper down each day as well. We should see NE long period swell into Wednesday with size dropping. Hopefully the swell last into late week when we see favorable wind.

Surf all week with choppy conditions and getting smaller later in the week.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Saturday/Sunday: Big and choppy
Weekend: big and super choppy.

Monday looks to be big and choppy also.

Maybe the local wind will lighten up into Tuesday or Wednesday.

There will be a big NE long period swell arriving Monday and should last into mid-week.

Just check wind forecast for best days coming up.

Next update Sunday night.

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

A small swell is showing up the past couple days. Thursday morning may be fun around 2-3 feet with offshore winds in the morning and afternoon onshores.

It looks like we will get a bigger swell into the weekend. A strong low pressure system off of New England looks to form the next few days and meander. This system looks to send in a NE long period swell starting Saturday and lasting into early next week.

Also, a weak low pressure system looks to quickly develop off of Jacksonville. This low may mess with the local wind forecast.

The general consensus is that we will see onshore winds into the weekend and early week. Thus, Choppy conditions for this swell.

However, wind forecast with a low so close is tricky. We may see periods of local wind switching up.

Long range forecast shows possible light winds Tuesday with remaining NE swell.

Small rideable swell for Wed/Thur/Friday. Then, bigger surf for late Saturday/Sunday/Monday/Tuesday.

Next update Saturday morning.

  Monday 3-4 feet in choppy wind swell
Monday: 3-4 feet choppy.

Strong onshore winds this Monday morning looks to blow in choppy swell. The wind looks to decrease and veer from the SE into Tuesday. Should see remaining swell and cleanup into Tuesday and Wednesday.

Size looks to stay around 2-3 feet most days this week. Check the wind forecast for best time to go.

Long range models shows an interesting low pressure system off the Florida coast on Friday and Saturday. Buoy models shows some size into Sunday! Something to watch!

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Friday: continued swell, offshore winds.
Friday: 2-4 feet in continued NE swell. Offshore winds.

Its probably too deep with this morning's high tide, but conditions should improve into lower tide. Swell still shows on the buoys but smaller. Wind forecast calls for west to SW.

A cold front looks to move through Florida on Saturday. We should see increasing North wind. This looks to crap out any remaining surf.

Sunday the wind turns from the NE and Monday East/SE. This should pick up a wind swell for early in the week with choppy conditions.

Long range models shows the potential for another bigger NE swell later on next week. Maybe Friday and the weekend. Strong low showing off of Hatteras. But, long range models aren't that accurate. Just something to watch!

Thursday surf was super fun. Long period NE swell with offshore wind all day. Hope you caught it!

Smaller on Friday, and turning to crappy on Saturday with that North wind. Looking for developing wind chop early in the week. Potential bigger swell later on in week.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Small surf Monday and Tuesday, picking up Wednesday.
A new swell develops late Tuesday and into Wednesday. Stronger onshore winds coupled with a strong low pressure system off of New England looks to blow in a swell. Size looks to be around 3-5 feet on Wednesday. Onshore winds on Wednesday looks to keep it choppy. Maybe a clean up on Thursday with offshore wind forecast. Swell looks to get smaller into Friday and weekend.

  Wednesday: East wind swell, choppy conditions
Wednesday: 2-3 feet with choppy conditions.

East winds look to kick up a choppy wind swell today.

Local winds are forecast to veer from the SE then South into Thursday/Friday.

SW wind is forecast for Saturday. Saturday should have a quick clean up with a declining swell. SW wind looks to blow all day Saturday and I expect it to knock down any remaining swell but may be fun in the morning.

2-3 feet for the next few days and going into the weekend.

Long range models shows the potential for bigger surf next week. A low may form in the Gulf and move out into the Atlantic. However, models haven't been consistent. Virtual models shows an increase into Wednesday of next week. Something to keep an eye on.

Next update Friday morning.

  Mostly small Friday through the weekend, chance for bigger surf mid-week
Friday: Small 1-2 feet in SE-South swell.

Doesn't look like much but just small SE wind swell through the weekend.

Early in the week looks similar with just small SE swell.

By Wednesday, the weather looks to change and it is looking like stronger onshore winds. Virtual buoys shows an uptick for Wednesday and Thursday. Probably with choppy conditions.

Next update Sunday night.

  Surfs up
Surfs up this weekend. Saturday the winds may slack off some. But, basically cold front swell this weekend and early next week. A strong low pressure system looks to form off of Florida Saturday night then jet North into Sunday and early next week. This system looks to kick back a fairly big NE swell for us. Local winds are forecast to blow offshore all of next week as well. Another cold front on Monday night. I'm taking a little break from the forecast. Check the reports the next few days for any surf. It should be up!

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Wednesday SE wind chop
Wednesday: SE wind chop

Some small SE wind chop for Wednesday.

Looks like we have a lot of weather the next few days and into early next week.

We should see a building NE swell Friday afternoon and into Saturday.

Also, a very strong low pressure system, Nor'easter, looks to develop off the Florida coast Sunday and Monday. This system looks to provide a larger NE swell early next week.

Wednesday looks to be small SE swell. Southerly winds on Thursday probably will make the surf funky. NW winds on Friday morning followed be the wind veering from the NE into the afternoon.

Weekend looks like a combination of NE to NW winds with that low developing near Florida.

Check the wave models. Looks like we may get a bigger swell early next week.

Next update Friday morning.

  Monday 3-5 feet in NE long period swell
Monday: 3-5 feet North to NW winds.

A long period swell is showing on the Canaveral buoys. This swell looks to last into mid-week. Tuesday morning may be the peak of it. SW winds forecast for Tuesday morning but turning from the SE into the afternoon.

Long range models shows a low pressure form in the Gulf and move over the State on Thursday/Friday. We probably will see a strong cold front get pulled through Florida behind the low. The low may be off the coast enough to kick back a swell for the weekend.

It is chilly out there. Rubber up and go surf!

Next update Wednesday morning.
