Saturday-Tuesday...The position of the developing surface low center
offshore will keep the stronger ENE/NE wind surge between the it and
the high to its north aimed at the SE seaboard, well to the N-NE of
ECFL. However, a brief increase in north winds to around 18-23kt is
progged to reach the Volusia Co. waters as well as nearshore Brevard
Sat-Sat night. Additionally a building NE swell will push seas up to
6-8ft in this area late Sat and 7-10ft Sat night through Sun night,
primarily for the northern and offshore waters. SCA will very likely
be needed for most if not all of the waters through Mon. Seas will
gradually decrease to 5-6ft by Tue, mainly in a continued swell.

Ya know SoFla is licking their chops...probably last chance of winter swell for them for a very long time.

At least we aren't shadowed by the bahamas as much. Feast or famine down there... just checked a few cams, looks flat for now.

According to this great circle map, 32 degrees is in CB swell window

http://stormsurf.com/gc/gcgif/east/cb_zoom.gif

...as we sit and wait, and wait, and wait...we can debate swell windows!

Magic seaweed saying sunday 5 to 6 feet with 11 seconds. Local wind N to NW at 10mph in the morning. Low at 7:17am. Hoping for some good waves sunday morning!

Coral cove looks to be the epicenter. West wind all day. That's the spot to travel down to cole. Plenty of wide open surf breaks and easy parking.

Windy's swell prognostications are no doubt mechanical (they do cooperate with Magic Seaweed) but they update fast and have good European data. And they're just not in the surf forecasting business. But they make it easy to compare down the coast and results are reasonably similar to Surfline. Looks really good for Coral Cove southward to Juno and a bit spottily northward. To judge from recent history, I would suspect forecasts of Indian River and St. Lucie being almost as good as those more southerly locations. If nothing else, we have a lot more shallow nearshore water.

I go to Ventusky for wind, looks really good as of now for Sunday. but other sites have it light NNW as least in the AM.,
I know Johhnyboy loves Coral Cove but I may be searching for a bit smaller size with my youngest, he has yet to get a full pounding of N swell energy, but perhaps it is time, young grasshopper

SYNOPSIS
A broad area of low pressure will develop between
south Florida and the northwest Bahamas today and lift toward the
north and northeast through early next week. A NE swell generated
by strong winds between the low and a strong ridge of high
pressure to its north will build over the local waters this
weekend through Monday. This will bring another period of
hazardous boating conditions to the local waters this weekend and
lasting into early next week.

oh man, I caught such a classic swell near there one year. burned into brain so hard I think it will survive most of the brain fade when it comes.

The wind in about 30 knots outside my window right now. Mel Beach should have some good sandbars from the new Patrick sand in the next few days.

We are looking at WNW at 10 here in Cocoa Beach tomorrow. I'm going to walk to surf, but thanks for the info JohnnyB.
