  Big Surf and strong offshore winds.
Big Surf continues.

Offshore winds with a cold front advancing.

Surf should last the rest of the week and taper off in size into the weekend.

Check the wind forecast for the week. Swell looks to peak today and taper off all week and stay mostly big. There is offshore wind forecast for Tuesday night and Wed/Thur with an approaching cold front.

Next update Tuesday night.

  Thursday: Small in the morning picking up in the afternoon
Looks like small surf Thursday morning with new long period swell filling in for the afternoon.

We have a lot of surf coming. A major Nor'easter is setting up and a lot of NE fetch will be pointed at us for the next few days. Next week looks to be really big with new NE long period swell filling in Sunday afternoon and getting bigger into early next week.

Next update Friday night.

  Swells in the forecast
Sorry haven't updated much. Been super busy and disinterested during the flat spell.

There looks like our luck changes as swells are forecast for Friday and into the New Year's weekend. Also, next week another big swell is showing in the long range.

I'm going to take a break from doing the forecast as I'm on vacation. I'll Update next week, 2018.

  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 in choppy conditions
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.
