  Friday and the Weekend: Choppy with some size
Looks like strong onshore wind continues for Friday and the weekend. Surf should have some size to it. Choppy conditions.

Checking next week the local wind may die down Monday/Tuesday.

Also, models shows a weak low pressure system forming East of the Bahamas. That is an interesting feature that may bring more surf and/or change the wind forecast.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Wednesday: fun surf
Should be another day of fun waves. Tuesday was pretty good.

Local wind forecast looks like light offshore wind turning onshore in the afternoon.

Thursday through the weekend it looks like stronger onshore wind happens. Should pick the surf size up but be choppy.

Next update Thursday night.

  Possible good surf on Tuesday
There is a NE swell on the hatty buoy this morning. Tuesday morning wind forecast calls for light offshore winds. Low tide in morning. Check it.

  Friday: 1-3 feet sideshore chop
Friday: 1-3 feet with Northerly winds

Looks to stay on the small side into the weekend. Another cold front, albeit weaker than the last one, looks to swing through Florida on Sunday. High pressure builds behind it Sunday afternoon with NE winds.

Saturday looks to be around 1-3 feet. Local wind forecast is iffy, but maybe light to offshore some time during the day.

Sunday: same size, but with winds picking up from the North then NE into the afternoon. The NE wind should pick up a NE wind chop swell into early next week. Staying on the small side.

Models show another strong low pressure system spinning off of New England Sunday and early week. This system may be off the coast enough to send a long period NE swell to us. Something to keep an eye on. Models don't show much Friday morning but if that system drifts a little further East than what is showing we may see one.

Small and rideable into the weekend. Small and choppy early in the week.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Tuesday: small to barely rideable
Tuesday: small to barely rideable

Strong NW winds look to blow for Tuesday and blowing anything down.

Cold front moving through Florida on Tuesday. We should see NW winds into Wednesday.

The surf looks to stay small/barely rideable all week. Maybe a North swell down in South Florida. Check the reports for there.

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast.

Next update Friday morning.

  Sunday: 2-3 feet
Sunday: 2-3 feet

Calm winds in the morning and turning onshore but light in afternoon.

Low pressure looks to form in the Gulf, move over the State and up the coast as a Nor'easter. It looks like it will stay too inshore to kick back a swell. But, maybe a sharp angle North NE sneaks in.

A couple cold fronts look to move through the Florida this week. No major swell makers but that will keep the local wind forecast hard to predict.

Mostly small 2-3 feet the rest of the week with winds switching around a lot.

Next update Monday night.

  Friday: small surf offshore wind
Friday: 1-2 feet with offshore winds.

Looks to be pretty small on Friday.

ENE winds pick up into Saturday. This should pick up a onshore wind swell into the afternoon. Sunday looks like onshore wind in the morning with potentially switching offshore into the late afternoon. This would clean the swell up.

Next week looks interesting, weather wise. A low pressure looks to form off of North Florida and move up the coast as a Nor'easter. Friday morning model runs have it hugging the coast too much, but you never know with these systems. Maybe a sharp angle North to NE swell next week.

Next update Sunday morning.

Saturday: Choppy surf

Swell looks to have some size. Wind is howling onshore from the NE.

Surf looks to stay up and choppy through the weekend and early next week.

I'll take a look at when the local winds will slack off next forecast.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Wednesday: 2-3 feet
Wednesday: 2-3 feet.

The local wind was calm early Wednesday. Maybe some good surf. I haven't seen it.

The wind is forecast to pick up from the SE this afternoon. Then Calm or West on Thursday morning. Maybe some fun surf Thursday morning if it has any size.

Cold front looks to swing through Florida Thursday afternoon/night. Local wind looks to pick up from the North Thursday night then veer from the NE into Friday. This looks to rapidly pick up a NE wind swell for Friday and the weekend. Surf looks to be around 3-6 feet with choppy conditions. Wind forecast for the weekend has it blowing hard onshore both Saturday and Sunday.

Early next week looks like continued choppy surf with some size.

Small surf until Friday and going into the weekend with choppy surf.

Next update Friday night.

  Monday: Choppy wind swell
Monday: Choppy wind swell.

Looks like choppy onshore wind swell the next few days. Possible offshore winds late Wednesday or Thursday. That would clean it up. Size looks to be around 3-4 feet all week.

Cold front looks to swing through Florida Mid-week/Thursday'ish. High pressure fills in late week and more onshore winds. Next weekend looks to have some size but onshore choppy conditions.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Friday: 4-6 feet and NW winds in the morning
Friday: 4-6 feet NW wind

Local wind forecast is iffy. Check the local wind before driving a distance. It was suppose to be NE today, but this morning NW. Still has some size.

We should see continued swell into Saturday.

That low is centered off the Florida coast now and looks to slowly move NE.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Wednesday: Building SE wind swell
Wednesday: Building SE wind swell. 3-4 feet and choppy conditions.

A low pressure system looks to form in the Gulf and move over the State on Wednesday. Then it looks to move up the coast.

This system looks to pick up wind and storms over Central Florida on Wednesday. Surf should rapidly pick up with SE wind. Choppy conditions.

Looks like onshore wind on Thursday also. But, looks to veer from the NE. With a low pressure system so close local wind forecast is tough. Check the local wind reports. Maybe a brief period of offshore wind for Thursday.

Wind swell looks to last into Friday. Low looks to pull away. We should see swell into the weekend also. There is currently a strong low pressure system NE of Bermuda. This system looks to send in a faint and inconsistent long period swell.

Next update Thursday night.

  Thursday small to flat
Thursday: small to flat

For the record there is a small long period swell showing on the buoy. However, the strong offshore wind looked to have killed that on making it to the beach.

Looks to stay on the small side the next few days. Maybe a longboard wave on Friday with lighter winds and remaining remnant long period swell.

Next chance for bigger surf is next week, Tuesday/Wednesday. Models show onshore wind flow then. Also, possible low pressure off the coast.

Next update Saturday morning.

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

The local wind is currently blowing semi-strong offshore. There is a small NE swell showing on the buoy. Is it big enough to break through the offshore winds? Check it before driving a distance.

Mystery small NE long period swell looks to last into Thursday. However, Thursday local wind forecast is to blow stronger NW. Check it first.

Friday the local wind is forecast to slow down and any swell that remains will probably be small.

No major swell makers in the long range forecast.

Next update Thursday morning.

  Wednesday: Strong offshore winds and swell
Wednesday: Strong offshore winds looks to blow fairly hard on Wednesday. There is a NE to N swell showing on the Hatteras buoy (Tuesday). Thus, it is difficult to guess the size of the swell with the offshore winds. It may or may not be good. Check the reports.

We may see a NE swell sneak in Wednesday afternoon. There are currently (Tuesday) strong NE winds off of Newfoundland. This may sneak a swell in. Offshore winds are forecast the next couple of days so check it.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Monday: Small surf
Monday: small surf NW winds. Turning from the NE Monday night.

I'm not seeing any major swell makers this upcoming week. Tuesday we should see a small NE swell. But, basically small surf the rest of the week and nothing in the long range forecast.

Next update Tuesday morning.

  Friday: 1-3 feet sideshore chop
Friday: 1-2 feet in sideshow chop

Northerly winds on Friday looks to veer from the NE into the afternoon. This looks to bump the surf up but not much.

Saturday looks around 1-3 feet with SE or South winds. There may be something to ride. Check the reports.

Sunday the same.

Not much of any swell makers are in the forecast. If anything there is a lingering East swell and maybe we will see a mystery North swell from that Nor'easter. But, don't expect much.

Long range models shows potential for a low in the Gulf and move over the State near mid-week. But, models don't agree and doesn't look to be too strong.

Small choppy surf for the weekend.

Next update Sunday morning.
