Forecast Pete

Biggest NorEaster in years

Pete here, long time since I've posted here and not sure if anyone even still lurks on this dinasour site but at one time it was a great resource for waves. Anyhoo couldn't  help but notice this event showing up on the maps. It started out over a week ago and looked good on paper (models) and decided to give My bro Rod still living in Fla land a heads up. Now being only a few days away this swell event is coming to fruition and will be one of the strongest events in recent years . We are talking about 15 ft at 15 seconds very possible on the buoys. Really almost too much for most spots in Florida but there will be windows of opportunity . Thats where I will try to help . 

   The Noreaster pulls off the NE/DelMarva coast Saturday  then By Sunday the center stalls around 36 North and 62 West . Whats really impressive is the strength 50-60knts winds stretched out over a really huge fetch thats elongated and fairly stationary. Its more like a Pacific low than an Eastern Atlantic low. This fetch will begin producing windwaves Saturday  transitioning to deep water swell on Sunday. The peak of the swell is on Monday with easy 15 ft or bigger swell reading on the outer Canaveral buoys. The captured fetch should make for some serious energy out there. Initial Swell component will have alot of North so i really think this one has a good chance of making it to Dade co. Bummer thing is that the winds are forecast to be initially Northy shifting and clocking around to SE then SW by Tuesday in advance of an approaching front . Wed winds offshore most places all day, Thursday am might be clean and with diminishing swell , might be ridable in more areas. Wins probably shifting back to onshore by PM Thursday. left overs Friday . If you ask me late Tuesday maybe a risky but good call for size , Wed a good bet but will still probably need the deep water spots , Thursday opens up more spots but diminishing surf. Leftovers Friday. Late Sunday /early Monday a good idea to check if any action down South. Wish i could be there for this event. Pacific has been very slow lately . In fact its been one of the slowest years since i moved out here 8 years ago. Happy hunting .
