  Wednesday: continued choppy surf
Wednesday: Continued choppy surf around 2-3 feet.

Easy surf forecast. Onshore winds and continued choppy rideable surf for Wednesday and into the weekend.

A pretty steady forecast. We have had onshore winds for the past few days. Also, a tropical wave looks to move near Bermuda the next few days. That and coupled with the onshore wind look to keep us in choppy rideable waves for the foreseeable future!

Next update Friday morning.

  Thursday: 1-2 feet in small swell
Thursday: 1-2 feet. Glassy morning, afternoon chop.

Looks to stay on the small side for both Thursday/Friday.

An onshore wind develops late Friday and into the weekend and this looks to bump the surf. We should see an developing onshore wind swell for the weekend. Saturday looks around 2-3 feet and Sunday a tad bigger around 3-4 feet. Super choppy conditions can be expected as the wind looks to increase both Saturday and Sunday.

We should see surf all of next week with continued wind swell. The onshore winds do not look to let up until mid-week. Thus, we should have some kind of rideable surf for several days starting on Saturday.

Long range models show some kind of weather disturbance between Bermuda and Puerto Rico. Probably a tropical wave, maybe depression. It looks to stay weak but should provide an East-SE ground swell sometime next week. Something to keep an eye on!

Small to barely rideable for Thursday/Friday. Then, building wind swell into the weekend.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Monday: 1-3 feet in continued wind swell
Monday: 1-3 feet.

Small surf continued into early this week. We have had onshore winds for the past several days. This should keep us in small rideable surf for the next few days.

Local wind forecast calls for continued onshore winds on Monday. For the rest of the days it looks like SW in the morning with afternoon onshores. Mostly small surf.

We may see a faint NE swell. There has been a low pressure system spinning in the N.Atlantic the past few days. Period swell buoy models don't show much from this system. But, we may see a NE swell sneak in. Keep an eye on the real buoys for any sign of this swell. The storm was very far away and not nearly as strong as it needed to be, so it is iffy we see anything.

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast up to next weekend. Models do show a pick up into Sunday with stronger onshore winds.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Friday: 2-4 feet in choppy wind swell
Friday: 2-4 feet with choppy conditions.

We should have SE wind swell Friday and into the weekend. Size looks to hover around 2-4 feet. Wind is forecast to blow onshore for the weekend but slow down a little from Friday. so, expect choppy conditions.

Wind swell looks to go into early next week.

There is a low pressure system spinning to the NE of Bermuda. We may see a faint swell from this system the next few days. Its pretty weak and far away but there is a NE wind fetch pointed at Central Florida. So, I expect a NE long period swell to sneak in sometime the next few days. Swell period models show it. It may not have enough size though. Time will tell. Keep an eye on the buoys over the weekend and next week for any signs of this swell.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Wednesday: 1-2 feet in small swell
Wednesday: 1-2 feet in small swell.

Check the reports. Probably rideable somewhere.

Looks to stay on the small side into Thursday as well.

We should see a building SE wind swell develop into Friday and the weekend.
Onshore winds look to pick up late Thursday from the SE and bring in choppy rideable swell around 2-4 feet. It looks to stay choppy into the weekend, but maybe an early morning light wind.

A low pressure system may spin off of Nova Scotia over the weekend. This system has a chance to send in a long period NE swell for next week. Something to keep an eye on!

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast.

Next update Friday morning.

  Monday: 1-2 feet
Monday: 1-2 feet.

Surf looks to stay on the small side the rest of the week. Mostly just small SE trade wind swell.

There is a chance for bigger NE mix of wind/ground swell for Friday and next weekend. Some NE wind fetch may set up off of Hatteras for Thursday and Friday.

Next update Wednesday morning.

Saturday: 2-3 feet.

Wind is calm this early Saturday morning. Reports are coming in that there are still waves but smaller than the past couple days.

There will probably be onshore winds into the afternoon.

Go Surf!

I'll check the forecast Sunday morning.

  Thursday: fun surf
Thursday: fun surf

The surf is super fun today. 3-5 feet with offshore winds. I haven't looked at any forecast stuff but NHC may name that low pressure that is spinning off the Carolinas today.

Hopefully more swell continues to come in.

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

  Saturday: 2-3 feet with choppy conditions
Saturday: 2-3 feet, choppy conditions. Getting bigger into the evening and the next few days.

New swell is developing. Looks to get bigger into Sunday. Surf all week with mix of NE long period swell and onshore wind swell. Mostly onshore winds for the next few days. Also, possible low forming East of Florida next week. If that happens, even bigger surf forecast for the end of the week.

Surf looks to be big, choppy, and rideable for the next several days. Good time to take a break from forecasting. A good sized low pressure system is spinning off of Hatteras today (Saturday). This system looks to pump in big NE ground swell for the next several days. However, marine forecast calls for onshore winds all week.

Next update Thursday morning.

  Thursday: 1-3 feet in small NE swell, offshore winds
Thursday: 1-3 feet and glassy conditions

Small swell looks like it lasted into Thursday.

A low pressure system is currently spinning off the Carolina coast. This system looks to move out to sea and kick back a NE ground swell for the weekend and early next week. Also, a low pressure system is showing to form East of Florida over the weekend as well.

The current small swell may last into Friday but with stronger NW wind forecast. Weekend looks like a building mix of NE long period swell and onshore wind swell. It looks like we will see some stronger onshore wind for the weekend and all of next week. Thus, we should see some sizeable surf with choppy conditions all of next week.

Next update Saturday morning.

  Wednesday: 1-3 feet in small swell West winds look to pick up into afternoon.
Wednesday: 1-3 feet, glassy conditions.

A cold front looks to move through Florida on Wednesday night. Also, a low pressure system looks to move across North Florida and into the Atlantic. This low look to move up the coast and potentially provide a NE ground swell for the weekend.

Stronger offshore wind looks to happen into Thursday. This will probably blow the small swell down. However, check the reports/cams early just in case. The small swell may still be there as virtual buoy show it remaining into Thursday.

We are looking for that low pressure system to spin off the New England Coast late Friday and into Saturday. We may see a NE long period swell from this system on Sunday and early in the week. Swell models look favorable for it to happen this Wednesday morning.

Also, long range models has a low pressure system forming just to the East of Florida sometime next week. Check your favorite wave model! We may see some bigger surf from that if it happens Tue/Wed.

Next update Thursday morning.

  Monday: flat
Monday: flat

Not much of any swell for early in the week. Some strong low pressure systems look to form along the East coast, but they don't look to be off the coast far enough to kick back a swell....at least for early in the week. Long range models do show a low off the coast for the weekend. But, too far away in time to say for sure.

Mostly small to flat the next few days. Strong offshore winds look to take place all week. A cold front looks to swing through Florida Wednesday and into Thursday.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Saturday: continued NE ground swell
Saturday: continued NE ground swell

Buoys Friday night continue to show NE long period swell. It was fun on Friday. Local wind forecast is iffy though, but difficult to guess what it is going to do. Just go surf.

Long range shows potential for more surf next week. I'll take a better look at it when the models do. Friday they showed a couple of strong low pressure systems forming off of Hatteras and move up to the NE coast. Hope it happens, but this time of year it is hard to believe we will see Nor'easter type swell. Thus, I want to wait for the models to figure it out. But, there is a potential for bigger surf next week.

Next update Sunday night.

  Friday: new NE long period swell
Friday: NE long period swell. North to NE winds.

Thursday night buoy shows small long period NE swell.

Wind forecast looks to be North to NE.

Size is difficult to guess. Long period swell means a long wait between sets and not all spots showing it.

Swell looks to last into Saturday but probably drop in size.

Models continue to show a chance for bigger surf next week.

Next update Friday night.

  Wednesday: small to flat
Wednesday: small to flat

It may be rideable somewhere but don't expect much.

We may see a small long period NE swell arrive late Thursday night and into Friday.

A strong low pressure system is spinning in the North Atlantic. It is pretty far away. But, swell period models do show something arriving later in the week.

Long range models show the potential for some bigger surf. A few low pressure systems are showing on the models to spin off the coast late week/weekend. We may see some long period NE swell from that early next week.

Next update Thursday morning.

  Wednesday: small to flat
Wednesday: small to flat

Not much of any swell for Wednesday.

It looks like will see a small pick up for Friday and Saturday. A weak low pressure system looks to move off the coast of Jacksonville. We may see a small NE swell from that Friday and Saturday. Size depends on how strong the low gets but looking like 2-4 feet.

Long range shows the potential of some bigger surf for next week, but nothing definitive. Basically small/flat surf Wed/Thur. Looking for something-something Friday/Saturday.

Next update Thursday night.

  Friday: 1-3 feet
Friday: 1-3 feet with semi-choppy conditions.

Small rideable waves can be found. Local winds look to blow from the S,SW, and SE. In other-words, difficult to guess. Forecast calls for SE winds today but Patrick station reporting SW this Friday morning. Check the cams/reports.

It looks to stay on the small side going into the weekend. Probably 1-3 feet for both Saturday and Sunday. Wind forecast is difficult as a front looks to stall on top of Florida over the weekend.

Long range shows more small onshore wind swell into early next week. Possible low pressure off the coast late next week. That is something to keep an eye on.

Mostly small 1-3 feet surf the next few days.

Next update Sunday morning.
