  Friday: 1-2 feet
Friday: 1-2 feet with SW winds.

A strong cold front looks to swing through Central Florida on Friday. Strong NW wind behind the front look to happen later this evening.

Strong NW winds look to blow everything down to small/flat. Friday may see a small rideable wave but don't expect much. Saturday looks blown out with continued strong NW winds.

A strong low pressure associated with this cold front looks to move up the Eastern Seaboard over the weekend. Unfortunately, it looks to hug the coast too much to kick back a swell. The long range forecast shows a couple more identical low pressures forming behind the current low. These also look to hug the coast. Looking for the potential of bigger surf from these systems is difficult. However, maybe we will see a sneaker swell Sunday or early next week.

Local wind forecast calls for strong SW for Friday turning from the NW late Friday/Saturday. Then the wind relaxes into Sunday. So, maybe Sunday a small swell will be present.

There is nothing sticking out for next week as the virtual buoy forecast shows small 1-3 surf for early next week.

Next update Sunday night.

  Wednesday: 2-4 feet with choppy conditions
Wednesday: 2-4 feet with semi-choppy conditions.

Small swell is showing on the buoys early this Wednesday morning. Check the reports and cams. Wind forecast calls for North winds in the morning and turning from the East during the day.

We should see surf into Thursday as well. Local wind looks to turn offshore with an approaching cold front for Friday. Thursday looks to be around 2-4 feet with South winds in the morning and veering from the SW into the afternoon. Probably the best surf will be Thursday afternoon.

Friday looks like a transitional day with strong SW winds in the morning and then NW into the evening. Cold front sweeps through Florida Friday night and into Saturday and cooling us down a bit. Surf looks to be small/flat on Friday and Saturday. If there are any waves it should be glassy with the strong offshore winds.

Although no major swell makers are showing in the long range forecast, models shows a couple of low pressure systems off of New England coast for the next few days and into next week. We may see a long period swell from these systems sometime next week. Wednesday model runs keep the lows too far inland for now, but maybe later model runs will show a deepening low off the coast. We are in Spring but the NE is still getting hammered with winter-like nor'easters.

Small surf for Wed/Thur. Looking for a wind switch on Thursday afternoon to offshore. Friday morning looks like strong SW winds then switching NW into Friday evening and Saturday with chillier air temps and small surf for the weekend.

Next update Friday morning.

  Sunday: small surf
Sunday: Small surf

Small longboardable waves for Sunday.

Looks to stay on the small to barely rideable side the next few days.

A small SE wind swell looks to develop into Wednesday. Size looks to be around 2-3 feet and choppy. Probably will last into Thursday. Onshore wind forecast for then.

A strong cold front is forecast for Friday. This looks to cool off spring break! Hopefully, we see some surf off it as well.

Long range models do show a low pressure forming off the coast of Florida for next weekend! Potential bigger surf if that happens!

Next update Monday night.

  Wednesday: small to flat
Wednesday: small to flat.

It may be rideable somewhere, just expect super small conditions.

We should see a pick up into Thursday. Virtual buoy forecast shows an increase in NE swell. Check the reports for Thursday. Probably 2-4 feet. There is a NE wind fetch forecast for off of North Carolina from a weak low pressure that looks to move up the coast. We should see a NE swell for Thursday then drop in size into Friday.

Weekend shows back to small surf.

Long range forecast does show the potential of a bigger NE swell early next week.

Something to watch!

Next update Friday morning.

  Friday: Building SE wind swell
Friday: 3-5 feet in choppy SE wind swell.

Looks like moderately strong SE winds for Friday. This should kick up the surf for the weekend.

Also, the SE winds will blow in warmer water!

Time for some spring surfing this weekend!

Local wind forecast looks like South to SE for Saturday and possibly slacking into the afternoon. Sunday looks like favorable winds with remaining mix of SE wind/ground swell. Size probably around 2-4 feet for the weekend. Check local wind forecast.

Looks like continued small surf all of next week. Previous forecast showed a strong low off the New England coast next week. Models now still show that low forming but over the coast. Still a chance we can see a NE ground swell from it. But, not as big as previously forecast.

Next update Sunday morning. Go Surf!

Looks like it will stay on the small side the next couple of days.

Stronger East winds look to pick up for Friday and Saturday. This looks to pick up the surf in the 3-4 feet range with choppy conditions.

Wind looks like it may slacken for Sunday and with remaining onshore wind swell it may have better conditions.

Long range forecast shows potential for bigger surf next week. A strong low is showing in the long range models to spin off the NE States. Potential bigger NE ground swell.

Next update Thursday night.

  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.

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.

  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.

  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.
