  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.

  Monday: 2-4 feet with choppy conditions
Monday: 2-4 feet and choppy.

It looks like we will have similar conditions all week. A range of 2-4 feet surf with onshore choppy conditions for the rest of the work-week. An extended period of onshore wind flow looks to happen and keeping us in choppy rideable surf all week.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Friday: small to barely rideable
Friday: small to barely rideable.

Not much swell for Friday. Saturday looks to be near flat as well.

We should see stronger onshore wind pick up late Saturday and especially into Sunday. This should stir the ocean up and provide an increasing wind swell for Sunday and early next week. Size on Sunday looks to be around 3-4 feet with choppy conditions. Monday may be a tad bigger with a developing mix of wind/ground swell.

Looking pretty small for Friday/Saturday and new choppy wind swell for Sunday and next week.

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast.

Next update Sunday night.

  Tuesday: small 1-2 feet
Tuesday: 1-2 feet. Small to barely rideable.

Not much swell for the next couple of days. We may see a uptick in SE wind swell into Friday and the weekend. But, don't expect much. Maybe 2-3 feet with SE winds.

Long range looks like we will have a Spring weather pattern. SE winds for the weekend followed by NE wind surge on Sunday and into Monday. Then switching from the SE into early next week. We should see rideable wind swell late weekend and early next week. Nothing too big, around 2-4 feet. Some wind models show stronger NE wind on Sunday so that we may see bigger surf then but with choppy conditions. A mix of wind and ground swell for early next week. 2-4 feet.

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast.

Next update Friday morning.

  Monday: 1-2 feet
Monday: 1-2 feet.

It looks like small to barely rideable surf all week.

We should see a small SE wind swell develop for Friday and Saturday.

Next weekend, specifically Sunday, there is a chance for a bigger swell. It is a long way in time so something to watch!

Next update Wednesday morning.

  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.

  Friday: 2-4 feet with glassy morning and choppy afternoon
Friday: 2-4 feet.

Surf dropped from Thursday but still some surf out there. It looks to be glassy until the afternoon when the wind is forecast to turn onshore.

Surf looks to drop further into the weekend, but remain rideable.

Possible bigger surf next week. I'll take a better look at it next forecast.

Next update Friday 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.

  Monday: 1-2 feet
Monday: 1-2 feet. Onshore winds

Looks to stay on the small side this week. Offshore wind is forecast for Tuesday.

We may see a slight pick up for the Thursday but long range forecast looks for the surf to stay small all week and into next weekend.

Super long range forecast shows a big swell for early next week.

Next update Tuesday night.

  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!

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