  Surfs up
Surfs up this weekend. Saturday the winds may slack off some. But, basically cold front swell this weekend and early next week. A strong low pressure system looks to form off of Florida Saturday night then jet North into Sunday and early next week. This system looks to kick back a fairly big NE swell for us. Local winds are forecast to blow offshore all of next week as well. Another cold front on Monday night. I'm taking a little break from the forecast. Check the reports the next few days for any surf. It should be up!

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Wednesday SE wind chop
Wednesday: SE wind chop

Some small SE wind chop for Wednesday.

Looks like we have a lot of weather the next few days and into early next week.

We should see a building NE swell Friday afternoon and into Saturday.

Also, a very strong low pressure system, Nor'easter, looks to develop off the Florida coast Sunday and Monday. This system looks to provide a larger NE swell early next week.

Wednesday looks to be small SE swell. Southerly winds on Thursday probably will make the surf funky. NW winds on Friday morning followed be the wind veering from the NE into the afternoon.

Weekend looks like a combination of NE to NW winds with that low developing near Florida.

Check the wave models. Looks like we may get a bigger swell early next week.

Next update Friday morning.

  Monday: small and glassy
Monday: small and glassy

There should be small waves today and into Tuesday. Check the reports. A small swell is showing on the buoys.

It looks like it will stay on the small side all week. Some significant weather is showing on the long range models. We may see bigger surf Friday and going into the weekend. Another low pressure system looks to form in the Gulf and move over the State later in the week.

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Monday 3-5 feet in NE long period swell
Monday: 3-5 feet North to NW winds.

A long period swell is showing on the Canaveral buoys. This swell looks to last into mid-week. Tuesday morning may be the peak of it. SW winds forecast for Tuesday morning but turning from the SE into the afternoon.

Long range models shows a low pressure form in the Gulf and move over the State on Thursday/Friday. We probably will see a strong cold front get pulled through Florida behind the low. The low may be off the coast enough to kick back a swell for the weekend.

It is chilly out there. Rubber up and go surf!

Next update Wednesday morning.

  Saturday: Flat
Saturday: flat

Wind is blowing too strong offshore for anything.

We should see a small N-NE long period swell fill in on Monday and last into mid-week.

Mid-week looks like SE winds and a slight warm up.

Long range models shows a major low pressure system form in the Gulf (Thursday/Friday), move over Central Florida, then bomb out in the Atlantic. Next weekend looks like we could have some really big and good surf. Nor'easter. Lets hope the models are correct!

Next update Sunday night.

  Thursday: 2-3 feet in small swell
Thursday: 2-3 feet in small swell.

Looks to be on the small side on Thursday.

SE winds look to pick up into Friday. This should pick up a quick wind swell but I don't expect it to last very long as the local wind looks to shift from the South, then SW into the evening.

A cold front looks to swing through Florida on Friday night. Stronger West winds on Saturday looks to blow anything left over to flat. Looks to get cold on Saturday night and into Sunday.

Models shows a chance of bigger surf early next week.

Next update Saturday morning.

  Monday 2-3 feet with NW to North winds
Monday: 2-3 feet with NW to North winds.

A cold front moved through Central Florida Sunday evening and looks to continue on Monday/Tuesday. We should see stronger West/NW/North winds for the next couple of days.

We should also see a long period NE swell fill in late Monday and into Tuesday. That same low pressure that gave us the surf the past few days blew up on top of Bermuda. The storm eventually moved East and further away from us but we should see long period swell. Virtual buoy models show this also. Look for Tuesday for another pulse of swell from that low. NW winds are forecast for Tuesday.

After that is looks like to taper off by midweek and may have some remain small long period swell into Thursday and Friday. Winds slack off Thursday and turn onshore into later in the week.

This past swell was pretty fun. First swell of 2016!

Next update Monday night.

  Friday: big surf
Friday: Big Surf

We should see good sized NE ground swell into the weekend. Wind forecast looks pretty good. Check the conditions and go surf.

Swell should last into early next week.

That low pressure system is currently (Friday) sitting on top of Bermuda and spinning up swell for us!

Next update Sunday night.

  Wednesday: Choppy surf
Wednesday: Choppy Surf

Surf has some size but is super choppy from persistent onshore winds.

We should see a lot of surf the next few days. A lot of weather out there!

A low pressure is currently (Wednesday) forming on top of South Florida. This low looks to move out East of the Bahamas by Thursday/Friday. Also, there was a series of low pressure system that were strung along a stalled front from Florida to Bermuda. The combination of these system look to provide multiple swell sources the next few days.

The X-factor is the local winds. Strong onshore winds look to continue while that low moves out to sea into Thursday. Local wind forecast is tricky for the next few days. models have been shifting on the prediction of direction. Best to keep an eye on the winds and go when it is offshore. Possibly late Thursday or Friday.

Surf size should be there, just wind forecast is tricky.

Long range shows another low developing in the Gulf and moving NE later in the weekend. This system looks like a classic Winter cold front with stronger low pressure system better known as a Nor'easter. Keep an eye on this system as it could provide even bigger surf early next week.

virtual buoys and swell period models are really lighting up for this weekend and next week! Plenty of surf opportunities coming up!

Next update Friday morning.

  Sunday: Northerly wind chop
Sunday: Small Northerly Wind chop.

A cold front swung through Florida on Saturday. A low pressure system looks to spin up East of the Bahamas then lift North.

We should see a building NE swell with that low off the coast. Unfortunately, early in the week the local wind forecast calls for strong North to NW winds. Wind turns from the NE into Tuesday and East for Wednesday.

Surf looks to pick up the next couple of days but with choppy conditions. We should see a clean up later on in the week, possibly Thursday.

Size looks to stay on the small side until Tuesday. Tue/Wed/Thur looks to be around 3-5 feet. Swell looks to last into Friday and the weekend, but tamper down in size.

Thursday looks like the best day of the week. Weather models show possible lighter winds or even offshore with remaining NE swell.

Long range forecast shows the possibility of another low pressure forming East of the Bahamas next weekend.

Chilly North winds for Sunday and Monday. Wind flipping over from the NE into Tuesday and we should see bigger surf then but with choppy conditions.

Next update Monday night.

  Wednesday 1-3 feet with choppy conditions
Wednesday: 1-3 feet with SE winds

Small surf continues. Looks like a weather pattern switch on Friday. A cold front looks to swing through Florida Friday and Saturday.

SE winds for Wednesday. South for Thursday, and then offshore for Friday. I expect the swell to stay on the small side. Northerly winds behind the front, Friday night and into Saturday. Front doesn't look to provide much swell.

Small and choppy for Wednesday and getting smaller into Thursday/Friday. Looking for a cool off for the weekend. Maybe a bigger swell next week.

Next update Friday morning.

  Saturday: 2-4 feet with Onshore wind swell
Saturday: 2-4 feet with choppy conditions.

Looks like continued wind swell for the next few days. Mostly onshore winds and keeping it choppy.

No major swell makers in long range. Looks like just rideable wind chop for the next few days.

  Wednesday: 2-4 feet with choppy conditions.
Wednesday: 2-4 feet SE winds.

Looks like we will see 2-4 feet with SE winds the next several days. SE winds look to blow through the Christmas weekend and early next week.

Warm and rideable through the Christmas break! Size looks to increase some for the weekend with stronger SE wind swell.

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast. Just SE wind swell for all of this week/weekend and early next week.

Next update Friday morning.

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

It looks like we will see an extended period of time with SE winds. SE winds look to blow all week and into next weekend. This should keep us warm and with rideable choppy waves for the next several days.

  Monday: 2-4 feet with South winds
Monday: 2-4 feet with side shore chop

Local wind is forecast to switch from the SW into Tuesday. This looks to clean the current wind swell. However, the size looks to also drop to 1-3 feet.

It appears the surf will further drop in size into mid-week.

Long range forecast shows another pick up of East-SE wind swell towards the end of the week and into the weekend.

Next update Tuesday morning.

  Friday: 2 to 3 feet with choppy conditions
Friday: 2-3 feet. Choppy.

Looks like we will have small rideable waves into the weekend. Local wind forecast calls for onshore winds for the next few days. Look for East winds, but not too strong, into Friday and Saturday. Local wind looks to pick up into Sunday and veer from the SE.

Also, this Friday morning a NE long period swell is starting to show on the Canaveral buoys. We may see a mix of long period swell along with the local wind swell for Friday and the weekend. Check the buoys and reports for this. There was a low pressure system that spun up in the North Atlantic a couple days ago.

Sunday looks like it will pick up to 3-4 feet with choppy conditions from a SE wind.

Wind swell continues into early next week. Wind forecast for Monday looks to start out onshore and possibly veer offshore into the afternoon. Monday afternoon has the potential for a quick clean up of the current wind swell.

No major swell makers are in the long range forecast. Small rideable waves look to continue into next week. Virtual buoys do show a pick up towards the end of the week. Something to keep an eye on.

Small and choppy waves for Friday and into the weekend. Pickup into Sunday with choppy conditions.

Next update Sunday morning.
