  Tuesday: small to barely rideable
Tuesday: 1-2 feet in small surf.

Looks like pretty small surf for the next couple of days.

A stalled cold front is to our North. It looks to eventually move through Central Florida later on in week. Probably Thursday.

A weak low may form off the coast.

We should see an uptick in surf on Thursday and Friday. Local wind is difficult to predict but probably North to NW on Thursday and lighten up some on Friday.

Weekend looks to be small but rideable.

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast.

  Thursday: 2-4 feet and choppy
Thursday: 2-4 feet and choppy

Looks like we will see continued onshore winds with 2-4 feet surf the next few days. The local wind may lighten up here-n-there but mostly blows onshore. Weekend looks same conditions. Mostly North or NE winds.

Long range forecast shows more onshore wind flow next week as well. Thus, continued onshore wind swell into next week.

Next update Saturday morning.

tuesday: 2-4 feet and choppy.

Looks like we will see onshore wind the next several days. With that choppy surf. Looks to last into the weekend. Wind may slow down into the weekend.

Long range shows the potential of bigger surf after the weekend. Possible Nor'easter showing on the long range models.

Next update Wednesday night.

  Wednesday: 2-4 feet in small surf
Wednesday: 2-4 feet.

Local wind look to blow NW to North on Wednesday and eventually turning from the SE into Thanksgiving day.

A weak low pressure looks to form in the Gulf and move NE. This should make the local wind hard to predict but it looks like onshore wind chop on Thursday and offshore winds for Friday/Saturday.

Swell looks to stay around 2-4 feet through Thursday with choppy conditions.

Friday with the offshore winds will offer a clean up but the swell will probably drop. Saturday looks like offshore wind but even smaller surf. 1-2 feet.

A weak cold front looks to move through Florida over the weekend. Onshore winds NE blow on Monday and pick the surf back up and that looks to last a couple days.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Next update Saturday morning.

  Onshore wind chop until Saturday.
Quick check of the wind models shows finally a slow down of the onshore winds the past few days for Saturday. Onshore wind chop until then. Maybe Friday even. Keep an eye on the wind forecast.

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

Looks like we will see a new NE wind swell develop late Friday and into the weekend. Surf looks to pick up quickly into the weekend and be around 3-5 feet in choppy surf. Local winds look to blow hard onshore for the weekend and last into early in the week.

Long range models shows a possible winter like Nor'easter. A low looks to form near Hatteras and spin up the coast. We may see our first winter NE swell later in the week.

Next update Saturday morning.

  Monday: small surf
Monday: small surf

Looks to stay on the small to barely rideable size all week. Potential for a small NE swell for Wednesday. But, basically small surf the next few days. Stronger onshore wind for Thursday and Friday. This may bump the surf up to 1-3 feet and rideable.

No major swell makers in the long range.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Low pressure move up the Florida coast.
Interesting weather scenario. Maybe some waves off it as it moves away from us. However, looks to hug the coast too much.

Next update Sunday night.

  Wednesday: small/flat
Wednesday: small/flat

Looks like a run of waves has died off. Nothing major showing in the long range.

There does look like a weak low pressure system, tropical system, may come up from the South into Florida. But, not showing any swell from it on the models yet.

I'll take a better look at it Thursday night.

Monday: 3-4 feet and choppy.

Wind onshore from the SE on Monday.

The local wind forecast calls for SW wind on Tuesday. It will be interesting on how big it will be as the wind looks to be fairly strong with the advancement of the season's first cold front into Wednesday.

Check the reports!

Next update Tuesday night.

  Continued Chop and big surf Friday and into the weekend.
Choppy conditions with some size Friday and into the weekend.

Wind looks to remain blowing onshore for the next several days and into early next week.

Season's first cold front looks to happen late Tuesday and into Wednesday. This should make the wind change from the North and possible lighten up. Swell size looks to decrease into midweek.

Choppy conditions for the weekend. Next update Sunday morning.

  Tuesday: 2-3 feet, Choppy NE winds. Picking up into the afternoon.
Tuesday: 2-3 feet in morning and picking up into the afternoon.

Looks like a fresh North to NE wind starts to pick up into Tuesday. Then by mid-week it blows stronger NE. We should see a long duration mix of NE wind and ground swell on Wednesday and into the weekend. Size looks to be around 3-5 feet. Maybe bigger.

Onshore winds Wednesday and into the weekend will keep it super choppy conditions.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Saturday: 3-5 feet with choppy conditions
Saturday: 3-5 feet with choppy conditions.

Continued surf for the weekend and even more next week.

Our streak of surf has been a long one! Unfortunately most of it has been with onshore wind and keeping it choppy.

Saturday looks like onshore wind chop with Sunday the wind relaxing. But, remaining choppy.

A new round of onshore wind looks to happen next week. Monday looks to start out smaller around 2-3 feet but stronger winds pick up Tuesday and last into the weekend. Surf size should pick up also in the 3-5 foot range.

Models show the possibility of a low pressure off of Hatteras later in the week and this may provide bigger NE ground swell.

Next update Sunday night.
