Yep,  some areas up here are still trashed from Matthew.  Been a lot of rain here recently too.

There's still plenty of people living in campers here in St. Augustine..... over 500 homes were severly damaged or destroyed, with mine being one of them.

that's the 00z.... the 06z has it further out but STRONGER (pushing cat 5)

Total crapshoot at this point (esp considering the EURO hasnt hopped on board yet) but worth monitoring.... especially for those of us who got flooded last year.

I'm stocking up on tubes of 4200

Yes, models are going to bounce around with each model run. It isn't even a named storm yet and a week away. So this goes into the 'hype' category at this point in time. However, this weekend for me will be eyeing the storm shutters looking around the yard and any projectiles get secured. AND, continue swimming 1/4 mile a day and step that up to maybe 1/2 mile. gotta be in shape to paddle out in hurricane surf! (knock on wood)...

Well the Atlantic high pressure has been pretty much in the same place for a long time. If it does develop we better hope something from the north pushes in to allow for the swing. I call this a hope 1 for no landfall.

and just like that, our epic swell turns to waist high windchop.  LOL

Gotta love the GooFuS model.
Expected though, when you start to see it closer to 5/7 days out, and similar on the Euro....then we can get a little excited.

Hey weatherman is surfing in Florida permanently fuct or is this just transitory. What role has geoengineering played in the demise of our sport? If any just curious.

Skunkape,
Please don't harass a knowlegable meteorlogist who generously posts on this site.
Not even sure what you said any way, but say it to one of the trolls, not Mr. Wieland.

we hyped, and NHC lowered the probability of it becoming a storm.

so heres the deal,

no hype. its flat. it sucks. quit surfing. then hopefully youll wake up next week and a cat 5 will be knocking at your door with overhead walls.
