  Tuesday: continued small surf
Tuesday: continued small rideable surf.

We should see continued small surf the rest of the week. Check the reports and cams.

A bigger swell is showing for the upcoming weekend. A low pressure looks to spin off of North Florida on Wed. Move up to Hatteras on Thursday. A strong high pressure look to build behind the departing low and provide a long NE wind fetch pointed at Central Florida. This looks to provide bigger choppy surf for the weekend.

Next update Thursday night.

  Friday: new NE wind swell to develop into the afternoon
Friday: Small to flat in the morning with a 2-3 feet NE wind swell developing into the afternoon.

Saturday the wind is forecast to blow from the SE and increase into the afternoon. This should pick the surf up to 2-4 feet with choppy conditions.

Sunday looks like continued onshore wind swell around 2-4 feet.

Early next week looks like continued rideable surf.

A persistent onshore wind flow looks to take place the next few days. This should keep us in small choppy surf for the weekend and next week.

Possible low pressure system off the coast mid-week.

Next update Sunday night.

A strong cold front is moving into Central Florida on Wednesday. Super strong NW winds for the next couple of days looks to blow any swell to flat. Super cold weather as well.

Next update Thursday night.

February 5, 2015
  Thursday: small/flat
Thursday: Small/Flat

Local wind looks to blow hard offshore and blow anything back. May be rideable, but don't expect much.

We should see the surf build drastically into late-Thursday and into Friday. Strong onshore winds for Friday from a high pressure system looks to blow in a moderately sized mix of wind/ground swells. Size looks to be around 4-5 feet. Swell looks to last into Saturday but drop in size.

Local winds look to be strong onshore Friday then slacking off into Saturday. Saturday morning should see some size but with a slight onshore wind keeping the conditions semi-choppy.

Swell looks to remain rideable into Sunday but again drop in size.

Early next week looks like small rideable surf with a new chance of big swell by mid-week.

Next update Saturday morning.

  Tuesday: small 1-3 feet
Tuesday: 1-3 feet.

Small surf can be found, but don't expect much.

Local wind looks to veer onshore for Tuesday. This should provide a small onshore wind swell.

Models show a low and associated cold front move through Florida on Thursday. This low looks to turn into a Nor'easter as it moves up the Eastern Seaboard. Strong North winds are forecast for Thursday then veering NE into Friday. We should see the surf get big for Friday and Saturday. Onshore winds look to keep it choppy. A mix of NE wind and ground swell for Saturday.

Wind looks to stay onshore into Sunday but lighten up.

Mostly small surf for the next couple of days then looking for bigger surf Friday and the weekend.

Next update Wednesday night.

  Friday: 2-4 feet in NE ground swell
Friday: 2-4 feet in NE ground swell.

Surf looks pretty good this Friday morning. It small and a long wait between sets but should be some fun ones.

Water Temp in Cocoa Beach: 62F

Another cold front looks to sweep through Florida on Friday. Stronger NW to North winds look to pick up into the afternoon.

Local wind look to veer from the NE into Saturday. This should pick up a small wind swell. SE wind for Sunday.

Continued small NE swell should also last into the weekend. There was a lot of activity in the North Atlantic this past week. I'm sure we will see small mystery long period swell for the weekend.

Long range forecast calls for another strong cold front for late Monday. So, more Northerly chilly winds and small surf.

Next week looks to stay on the small side. However, super long range models shows a strong low pressure off the coast later in the week. Check the wave models...we may see big surf for the following weekend. Also, by Wednesday we may see a mix of NE wind and ground swell.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Monday: small to flat
Monday: small to flat

Not much swell out there.

A cold front is moving through Florida on Monday.

Strong offshore winds look to blow anything flat.

Check the Wx models this morning it looks like there is a chance we see swell from a series of low pressure systems that look to form this week.

Currently there is a strong low pressure on top of the New England States. This system looks too close to the coast to send back a swell. Mostly strong NW winds up there. We need some NE wind fetch for it to kick back a swell.

Another low pressure system is looking to form off the coast this week. Previous model runs showed it sending a big swell towards the end of the week and next weekend. However, Monday model runs show it hugging the coast.

With that said, things can change. There does look to be a lot of weather happening to our North for the upcoming week. The mostly NW wind fetch could send in a swell to South Florida or even Central Florida. So, check the wave models, buoys, and reports for anything.

So, mostly small/flat the next few days. Possible small NE swell Thursday/Friday. And, looking for something this weekend if the models are wrong this morning!

Next update Tuesday night.

  Saturday: small to flat
Saturday: small to flat.

A cold front is moving through Central Florida today.

Mostly NW winds looks to blow any swell flat.

Long range models shows pretty good chance of swell for the upcoming week. Especially towards the end of the week.

I'll take a better look at it Sunday morning. Looks like a series of low pressures will be off the coast next week!

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

There should be small surf to be found. Just don't expect much. Looks to stay on the small side the rest of the week and into the weekend. A strong low pressure system looks to spin up in the Gulf and move over the State early weekend. This system looks to hug the coast too much to kick back a swell. However, long range models put another low pressure system off the coast early next week.

Mostly small conditions until next week.

Next update Thursday night.

  Friday: 3-4 feet with Northerly sideshore chop
Friday: 3-4 feet NW winds

Looks like we will have continued swell for Friday and into the weekend.

Local winds look to blow strong from the NW for Friday. Local wind forecast looks tricky for the weekend. Overall looks like the wind will slow down and veer onshore for Saturday. Possible offshore for Sunday.

We should see continued 2-4 feet surf for the weekend.

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast. However, models do show a strong low pressure in the Gulf late next week. This is something to watch. However, a long way away in time. Also, we may see a strong Low off of the Canadian Coast early next week that could send a long period NE swell. But, all next week.

Next update Monday morning.

  Wednesday: 2-4 feet with choppy conditions
Wednesday: 2-4 feet. Northerly winds look to put a surface chop on it.

A small ground swell is showing on the buoys. Chilly North wind blowing for Wednesday.

Similar conditions look to go into Thursday.

We probably will see rideable surf the next few days with crummy weather conditions the next few days.

Long range models shows the potential for more surf after the weekend. But, nothing definitive.

Check the cams and reports. There are waves out there, just the conditions are windy and chilly.

Next update Friday morning.
