  Thursday small to flat
Thursday: small to flat

For the record there is a small long period swell showing on the buoy. However, the strong offshore wind looked to have killed that on making it to the beach.

Looks to stay on the small side the next few days. Maybe a longboard wave on Friday with lighter winds and remaining remnant long period swell.

Next chance for bigger surf is next week, Tuesday/Wednesday. Models show onshore wind flow then. Also, possible low pressure off the coast.

Next update Saturday morning.

  Wednesday: small swell offshore winds
Wednesday: 1-3 feet in small swell.

The local wind is currently blowing semi-strong offshore. There is a small NE swell showing on the buoy. Is it big enough to break through the offshore winds? Check it before driving a distance.

Mystery small NE long period swell looks to last into Thursday. However, Thursday local wind forecast is to blow stronger NW. Check it first.

Friday the local wind is forecast to slow down and any swell that remains will probably be small.

No major swell makers in the long range forecast.

Next update Thursday morning.

  Wednesday: Strong offshore winds and swell
Wednesday: Strong offshore winds looks to blow fairly hard on Wednesday. There is a NE to N swell showing on the Hatteras buoy (Tuesday). Thus, it is difficult to guess the size of the swell with the offshore winds. It may or may not be good. Check the reports.

We may see a NE swell sneak in Wednesday afternoon. There are currently (Tuesday) strong NE winds off of Newfoundland. This may sneak a swell in. Offshore winds are forecast the next couple of days so check it.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Monday: Small surf
Monday: small surf NW winds. Turning from the NE Monday night.

I'm not seeing any major swell makers this upcoming week. Tuesday we should see a small NE swell. But, basically small surf the rest of the week and nothing in the long range forecast.

Next update Tuesday morning.

  Friday: 1-3 feet sideshore chop
Friday: 1-2 feet in sideshow chop

Northerly winds on Friday looks to veer from the NE into the afternoon. This looks to bump the surf up but not much.

Saturday looks around 1-3 feet with SE or South winds. There may be something to ride. Check the reports.

Sunday the same.

Not much of any swell makers are in the forecast. If anything there is a lingering East swell and maybe we will see a mystery North swell from that Nor'easter. But, don't expect much.

Long range models shows potential for a low in the Gulf and move over the State near mid-week. But, models don't agree and doesn't look to be too strong.

Small choppy surf for the weekend.

Next update Sunday morning.

  Wednesday: small swell, SW winds
Wednesday: 1-3 feet in small ESE swell and SW winds.

Small swell is showing on the buoy. Check the reports.

This small ESE swell should stay with us for the next few days around 1-3 feet.

The weekend swell that was forecast earlier looks to be have been downgraded.

The strong low that looks to move up the coast looks to hug the coast too much. It also looks to swing a cold front through Florida on Thursday. Weekend will probably still have surf, but smaller than previous forecast. I'm guessing around 2-3 feet. Hopefully the low does move off the coast enough to kick back a NE swell.

Small swell mid-week with clean conditions. Cold front Northerly winds sometime on Thursday. Local winds veering from the NE into Friday. East/SE for the weekend. Should be rideable for the weekend with choppy conditions. Hopefully some North swell sneaks in and is bigger than what I'm seeing on the models.

Next update Thursday night.

  Monday: 2 to 3 feet
Monday: 2 to 3 feet in continued NE swell.

Monday looks to be a little smaller than Sunday. But, remaining rideable.

Looks to stay on the small side the next few days. Wind turns SW on Wednesday so whatever is leftover may be fun.

Bigger and stronger swell is showing for late Friday and the weekend. Looks like we may get a North to NE swell for next weekend.

Next update Tuesday night.

  Monday: small surf
Monday: small surf

There is very small surf to be found but don't expect much. Buoy off canaveral does show NE long period swell, but the wind looks to be strong offshore. Maybe it is good for longboards, or bigger than what I'm seeing. Check the reports for anything.

Doesn't look like much swell the rest of the week. Strong offshore winds all week look to blow anything small/barely-rideable.

South Florida may have something the next couple of days. Wind is forecast to blow from the NW with that low pressure moving up the Easter Seaboard.

Next update Tuesday morning.

  Thursday: small/flat
Thursday: small/flat

Not much swell showing for the next couple days.

We may see something for the weekend. However, looks like some weather coming through late Sunday. Maybe a small NE swell Sunday and virtual buoys show a small NE long period swell for Monday and Tuesday. This is from a weak low off of Newfoundland. It didn't have much NE winds pointed back at us, so the swell may be pretty small and inconsistent.

Strong cold front looks to swing through Florida on Sunday. Probably in the afternoon. We should see offshore winds late Sunday and early next week. So if that NE long period swell shows it may be fun.

A big low pressure system looks be associated with this cold front. It looks to spin up on top of the SE states late weekend and near Hatteras on Monday. We probably won't see a swell from this system as it looks to stay inland as it moves up the coast.

Small to flat until the weekend with the possibility of a small NE ground swell.

Next update Saturday morning.

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

Still some small waves today but much smaller than past few days.

It looks to stay small/barely-rideable the next few days and into the weekend.

Looking at possible swell for late weekend but nothing definitive.

Next update Wednesday night.

  Friday: new long period swell
Friday: new long period swell

Looks like we sill see a new long period swell fill in for Friday. A broad low pressure system is currently spinning between bermuda and the caribbean. This swell looks to go through the weekend.

Swell size looks to go up into Saturday. The buoys East of the Bahamas really shows an increase in East swell this Friday morning. Thus, that should fill in for the weekend.

Local wind forecast calls for onshore wind for the weekend. However, the local wind forecast has been off all week. We have seen mostly calm wind for the past few days where the models have been showing onshore. Oh well, that is in our favor and I hope the wind stays calm into the weekend. However, check the real time wind. It is forecast to pick up onshore the next few days.

  Wednesday: 2-4 feet
Wednesday: 2-4 feet.

Tide was too deep this morning but looks to improve with dropping tide.

The local wind forecast was wrong for mid-week. The wind has been calm to light the past couple of days.

Surf looks to stay around he same size the next couple of days. Models show bigger surf for the weekend. Looks like onshore wind comes with it. I'll take a better look at it next forecast.

Next update Thursday night.
