  Thursday: Choppy 2-3 feet
Thursday: choppy 2-3 feet.

Choppy wind swell continues into Thursday. Friday looks like it will also continue and may be a tad bigger. Local onshore wind swell looks to continue into the weekend.

A weak low pressure system, is showing to continue to move from currently East of the Bahamas to the SE coast this weekend. We should see a small NE-E ground swell from this system. NHC says it has a chance to be a named storm. However, models on Thursday morning keep it weak.

Along with the current onshore wind swell we should see a small mix if NE swell from this weak low into the weekend. Local wind forecast has the wind slowing down into Saturday and possible offshore sometime Sunday. However, with a low pressure this close the local wind forecast is iffy. I imagine Saturday morning may be lighter than Friday but with afternoon onshore. Sunday may see a offshore winds but again with afternoon onshores.

Size looks to be around 2-4 feet on Saturday, probably a little smaller on Sunday around 2-3 feet.

The official start of Hurricane season is June 1st. 3 day Memorial weekend is typically the unofficial start of summer. Any surf we get this time of year is rare. So, get on it!

Next update Friday morning.

  Tuesday: small surf
Tuesday: small surf.

Not much swell today but may be rideable at the small wave spots. Check the local reports.

We should see an uptick of onshore wind swell going into Wed/Thur/Friday. Onshore winds look to pick up then and provide 1-3 foot choppy wind swell.

Also, a weak low pressure system looks to move from the Bahamas and up to Hatteras later in the week. This system looks to move towards Hatteras into the weekend and looks to provide small SE ground swell for the weekend. Models keep it weak, but we are getting near Hurricane season...Keep an eye on this system. If anything it may offer a warm up paddle for the 3 day weekend. We should see a mix of small SE ground swell and wind swell from this system as it will be right off the Florida coast. Once the low moves to the North of us we should see offshore winds.

Long range forecast doesn't show much. Mostly small and choppy the next few days with the 3 day weekend showing some small rideable surf (2-3+ feet) for Saturday and maybe lasting into Sunday.

Next update Wednesday night.

  Wednesday: small to flat
Wednesday: small to flat

Not much of any swell the next few days.

Models are hinting at something will happen weekend and/or early next week. But, nothing definitive. They have been showing low pressure systems forming on over the SE States. So far they look to stay too far inland to send a NE swell. Predicting NE swell in late May is pretty much a crapshoot. I would be surprised if it happens.

We may see some small rideable waves for the weekend and early next week does show a small uptick on swell size. But, nothing major.

Next update Friday morning.

  Monday: small and barely rideablel
Monday: small to barely rideable

We may see a small SE wind swell for Tuesday/Wednesday but staying on the small side.

No major swells for the week and weekend.

A little bit of promise for early next week. Models show a possible low pressure off the SE Coast Sunday and into Monday. However, long way away and a winter like low in late May is hard to imagine. But, something to watch.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Thursday: 1-3 feet in remaining swell
Thursday: 1-3 feet. Glass morning afternoon chop.

Wednesday has small 2-3 feet surf. I expect it to last into Thursday morning at least.

There is a downward trend in the size after Thursday. Looking to be small to barely rideable for the next few days.

No major swell makers in the long range forecast.

Next update Friday morning.

  Monday: Small and barely rideable
Monday: Weak surf.

We should see a small SE trade wind swell late Tuesday and into Wednesday. A SE wind looks to develop the next few days and keeping it in choppy conditions. Surf looks to be around 1-2 feet on Tuesday, and 2 to 3 feet on Wednesday. Small swell will probably linger into Thursday.

No major swell makers in the long range forecast.

Next update Tuesday morning.

No swells are in the forecast for the upcoming week. A rare late season cold front looks to move through Central Florida mid-week.

Check the small wave spots for anything.

  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.
