Florida Forecast(North of Palm Beach)

Look for this little windswell to start arriving on Saturday afternoon/evening. Surf should build through midday on Sunday, which coincides with a low tide at around 1pm.  Incoming push in the afternoon will probably be your best bet, but I wouldn’t recommend waiting around much, since it might fizzle out as fast as it arrived.  Winds are looking good, though.  Forecast for WSW winds under 10 kts.

Saturday: Starts out very small and with a high tide softening whatever trace of swell is on tap.  Look for conditions to improve as the tide drops.  The wind should also start to come around to the SW, cleaning up whatever little swell is trickling in.

Sunday: Waves in the waist high range with offshore winds. Nothing huge, but could be pretty fun at the right sandbar/tide.

Florida Forecast(North of Palm Beach)

For Florida, swell from Edouard will arrive late Tuesday in to Wednesday.  Look for the swell to build considerably during the day on Wednesday before peaking late in the day/evening. We’ll see waves pinging the buoys at nearly 18 seconds as it starts to fill in, but the biggest stuff will probably be 5-6 feet at 15/16 seconds. If you know Central America, you know that a swell that size would get the points and reefs going- It’s that kind of swell. As Thursday dawns, look for solid leftovers fading in to Friday. The weekend also looks interesting with an approaching cold front with potential for swell generation!

Tuesday: Swell arrives late. Watch the East Canaveral Buoy for small, long period (16+ sec) swell. If it shows early morning on that buoy, you might have a shot for an afternoon session.

Wednesday: Swell arriving from the East in the head to well overhead range. Biggest in the afternoon. Winds will be straight offshore and light. Big, long lines. Mostly shutting down at your average beachbreak. Find some place with a great bottom or some rock. Smaller further south to completely flat in the Palm Beaches.

Thursday: Fading swell in the shoulder to head high+ range with light offshore winds in the morning, turning more northerly.

Friday: Edouard’s swell fades to near flat.

Surf Forecast 9-15-2014

Hi everyone!

I'm working on an extended forecast, which will be cross-posted on DadeCoSurf.com and a new site I'm developing called ThankYouSurfing.com - Surf Forecasts, Travel and Community. 

In the meantime, here's a quick update for you...

Hurricane Edouard is chugging along nicely in the Atlantic. The storm has thrown down wind over a significant patch of ocean, so this storm will be producing a solid tropical swell! Right now, we're looking at forefunners showing up on Tuesday, with the bulk of the swell showing at upcoast spots between Wednesday and Thursday. Most spots in our region WON'T hold a swell of this type, so choose your spots carefully.

Amping!!!
