  Tuesday: 2-3 feet
Tuesday: 2-3 feet South to SW winds.

SE swell looks to remain into Tuesday but drop from Monday.

South winds look to blow into Tuesday.

A cold front looks to move through on Wednesday. Strong NW winds for Wednesday and Thursday. This looks to blow any swell to barely rideable.

We should see the winds veer from the NE late Friday and into the weekend. This should pick the surf back up to the 2-4 feet range with choppy conditions.

Also, a low pressure looks to form off of North Florida and move up the coast as a Nor'easter. This low may kick back a NE ground swell. However, most models show it hug the coast too much. It is something to keep an eye on.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Sunday: 3-5+ in choppy conditions
Sunday: super choppy conditions with strong E to SE winds.

Look for a clean up into Monday as the local wind forecast calls for SW winds.

We should see the swell size get knocked down by the offshore winds but may be pretty fun before it does. Monday looks to be around 2-4 feet with South to SW winds. Check the reports.

Swell looks to drop into mid-week. Also, another strong cold front looks to move through Florida late Wednesday and into Thanksgiving. Strong North to NW winds for late Wed/Thursday. Wind looks to veer from the North to NE into Black Friday and this should increase the surf into next weekend.

Also, a coastal low pressure system may form off of North Florida and move up to Hatteras and turn into a Nor'easter late week. This may enhance the surf size if it forms and we could see bigger NE ground swell into the weekend! Not all models show the low pressure system off the coast far enough though. It may hug the coast too much to kick back a swell. Something to keep an eye on though!

Next update Monday night.

  Wednesday: 2-3 feet in choppy wind swell
Wednesday: 2-3 feet in North to NE wind swell

Looks to be blown out for Wednesday. Wind forecast calls for North to NE. So different forecast. Wind looks to be strong so all chopped out.

Wind looks to veer from the NE into Thursday and last for a few days and into the weekend.

We should see building NE wind swell late Thursday and into Friday. Saturday looks like it may have some size with a healthy onshore wind flow. Around 3-5 feet.

Long range looks like wind turns from the SE into late weekend with continued moderate sized wind swell and choppy conditions.

Next update Thursday morning.

  Monday: 1-3 feet in small swell
Monday: 1-3 feet.

Sunday saw pretty fun small surf. Monday looks to drop but remain rideable.

A cold front looks to move through Florida on Monday night. Strong North to NW winds for Tuesday and mid-week with very little surf.

High pressure builds into late weekend. We should see building new onshore wind swell for Friday and next weekend. A good onshore wind fetch looks to set up for next weekend and we should see a mix of wind and ground swell.

Next update Tuesday night.

  Tuesday: small in the morning and building into the afternoon.
Tuesday: 1-3 feet in the morning.

The swell should build into Tuesday afternoon. The low pressure that is off of North Florida looks to move North. There was some NE wind fetch off of Hatteras to Georgia on Monday. We should see a small NE swell fill in as the day goes on.

However, local winds are blowing hard from the NW. These winds should slow down into the afternoon and with low tide, we may see a fun little swell.

Check the reports/cams into Tuesday afternoon for anything.

We should see small NE swell into mid-week. But, basically check the reports before driving a distance. With a low pressure so close to the coast it is difficult to determine which spot will break.

Weekend has the potential for more surf. A cold front looks to move into Florida on Friday. A strong low may be off the coast of Hatteras with this system. We may see more North to NE swell for the weekend.

Next update Thursday morning.

November 9, 2014
  Sunday: 2-3 feet with NW winds
Sunday: 2-3 feet with NW winds.

A weak low pressure system is on top of Florida today. This system looks to move up the coast into Monday and Tuesday.

We should see moderately strong NW winds into Sunday and Monday, then North into Tuesday. Surf should be rideable for both Monday and Tuesday. Tuesday looks to be the better day as the low moves NE and sends in a small NE ground swell around 2-4 feet.

Mid-week looks like continued small 2-3 feet rideable surf.

Long range looks pretty good for next weekend. A low pressure system looks to spin off of Hatteras on Friday. We may see a NE ground swell from that next weekend.

Next update Monday night.

  Friday: 2-3 feet. Semi-glassy conditions with NW winds
Friday: 2-3 feet, NW winds.

A cool front moved through Florida Thursday night and continues into Friday. NW winds look to put a surface bump on it. Surf is smaller than Thursday.

I expect to see small 2-3 feet into the weekend. We should see East to NE winds pick up on Saturday. Then North on Sunday. This looks to keep the surf up but also with choppy conditions.

Surf looks to stay on the small side early next week. Long range models shows a strong low pressure system off of Hatteras late week. This may be our next big swell maker.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Wednesday: 2-4 feet in choppy wind swell
Wednesday: 2-4 feet in choppy wind swell

Choppy surf continues.

Surf looks to stay in the 2-4 feet range through Thursday and Friday.

Local winds look to blow hard on Wednesday then slack off into Thursday.

A cold front looks to move through Florida late Thursday. It looks like possible offshore winds late Thursday and NW for Friday morning. Wind probably will veer from the NE into the weekend.

No major swell makers are showing. But, we should have continued small surf for the next few days and into the weekend.

Next update Friday morning.

  Saturday: small to flat with strong NW winds
Saturday: small to flat with offshore winds.

Local wind looks to blow strong offshore for Saturday and Sunday. Conditions look to be small on Saturday and build into Sunday. A new NE swell looks to fill in on Sunday. Check the reports.

Wind looks to veer from the NE into Monday. Then, all of next week strong onshore wind is forecast. This should keep us in moderately big and choppy surf all of next week.

Wind looks to slow down around Thursday.

Next update Sunday night.

  Thursday: 2-3 feet with choppy conditons
Thursday: 2-3 feet with choppy conditions.

Small choppy waves for the next couple of days. NE winds look to blow on Thursday and Friday then veer from the North into the weekend. We should see small choppy surf from the onshore winds.

No major swell makers are in the immediate forecast. But, models have been hinting that we will see some weather next week. What that means is that the models don't have a firm grip on it thus neither do I.

Small choppy waves going into the weekend. Looking for something to happen next week!

Next update Saturday morning.

  Wednesday: 1-2 feet
Wednesday: 1-2 feet

Small surf for Wednesday.

We should see a small onshore wind swell develop for Thursday and Friday.

Also, there is a possibility of tropical activity near Florida for the weekend and early next week.

I would like to see Wednesday afternoon model runs to make a forecast though.

Next update Wednesday night.

  Monday: 2-3 feet in mix of NE wind and ground swell
Monday: 2-3 feet.

A mix of NE wind swell and ground swell for Monday.

Surf is a lot smaller than this past weekend but should still be rideable for Monday.

It looks to stay small through the week.

A new NE wind swell looks to happen Thursday and into the weekend. Stronger NE winds are forecast for later in the week. Possible Low pressure off the coast. Also, long range models put a low, possible tropical storm, in the Gulf later in the week/weekend.

Next update Tuesday night.

  Thursday: small in the morning with new ground swell filling in the afternoon
Thursday: small in morning picking up as day goes on.

Early Dawn Thursday no swell was showing. However, the buoys show swell coming.

It should fill in today. SE angle swell and should have some size when it arrives.

Swell looks to last into the weekend. Winds offshore for Thur/Fri.

Next week shows promise as well.

Taking a few days off. Go Surf!

Next update Sunday night.

  Wednesday: 1-3 feet
Wednesday: 1-3 feet and semi-glassy conditions

Small surf can be found on Wednesday. Offshore winds look to blow fairly hard and putting a surface chop on it. Check the reports for the best spots.

Hurricane swell should fill in on Thursday. Timing looks to be around noon. Local winds look to blow from the NW. A cold front looks to swing through Florida on Wednesday and provide NW winds for Thurs/Friday.

Size from this swell looks to be around 4-6+ feet. Possible bigger set waves at its peak. Swell should last into the weekend. The East Bahama buoy this Wednesday morning shows really big swell. Bahamas look to block a lot of the swell for South Florida so look North for bigger surf.

Swell looks to peak Thursday and into Friday and then decay into the weekend.

Long range forecast is looking pretty good for next week. A possible Nor'easter and a tropical storm in the Gulf.

Next update Thursday night.

  Tuesday: 2-4 feet in choppy swell
Tuesday: 2-4 feet in choppy conditions

We should see a mix of wind and small ground swell into Tuesday. Monday saw 3-4 feet and choppy surf. Local wind looks to remain blowing onshore into Tuesday.

Period swell models show long period SE swell from Gonzalo mid-day Thursday and last into the weekend. We also have a cold front that may swing through Florida later on in the week. This front may bring offshore winds for the Gonzalo swell!

Next update Wednesday night.
