For the North Atlantic...Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico:

The National Hurricane Center is issuing advisories on Tropical
Storm Hanna, located inland near the border of Texas and Mexico.

1. A broad area of low pressure associated with a tropical wave is
located about 1000 miles west-southwest of the Cabo Verde Islands.
This system is producing a wide area of disorganized showers and
thunderstorms as it moves westward around 20 mph across the
tropical Atlantic. Environmental conditions are forecast to be
conducive for development and a tropical depressions is likely to
form within the next few days as the system nears the Lesser
Antilles. Interests in the Lesser Antilles should monitor the
progress of this system.
* Formation chance through 48 hours...medium...60 percent.
* Formation chance through 5 days...high...90 percent.

"The intensity of #92L will possibly help determine its long term track. A stronger system will likely feel a forecasted trough in the 6-10 day range, while a weaker system could track into the Caribbean or through the Greater Antilles. The door is open for all possibilities..."

So if you are a surfer I wish you the prosperity that allows you more time to pursue the salt water dream, and the true happiness that comes from warm water, clean waves and the companionship of your fellow surfers. If you are an internet troll just spewing bs then f off.

Yep. Stronger storms are more apt to be influenced by environmental (and physical) steering factors.... we need that thing to start developing asap

My prediction: Two days of monster closed out walls in onshores, followed by three hours of chest high bowls with west winds before dark and flat the next day.

The progressive runs have it farther out now . The winds look to be offshore Saturday and Sunday . Would be nice to enjoy clean waves with a little meat on them for a change .

Cole, you are being too optimistic.

I have made a correction for you LOL



Two days of monster closed out walls in onshores, followed by three hours of chest high bowls with west winds AFTER dark and flat the next day

"I remember South Africa in the late 70's, sleeping on the beach at J-bay, smoking ganja with the blacks. On weekends we'd go to the pub in East London to drink beer and fight with the Afrikaners. They liked to fight, I liked to fight. It was a good time"

"92L is dealing with some struggles today. It's ingesting quite a bit of Saharan dry air and is moving very quickly. The circulation is also very large which is helping to pull that dry air in. Large waves need a moist environment. Don't see this pulling together soon. We'll see."

Long range tracking looks pretty good for recurve and staying WAY out to sea. Obviously looking at virtual buoys it shows a significant uptick for the weekend. Hope it happens!
