Very interesting scenario. Looks like this event will be hanging around a few days. Primary energy will be 15-30 deg or fairly Northerly on monday but also weak in strength. The real energy comes Tuesday with with the possibility of over 15ft seas and an 11-12 sec wave period. Wave energy is forecast to move more towards the NE (45 deg) which is not good for us down here. Winds will be cranking to near 30 knts also out of the NE so don't wax the giant killers yet. Wed gets more interesting as the swell holds but the winds start to lighten and move towards the N and possible NW (By some models). Thursday am might find good clean up conditions mainly Palm beaches North. Where the dividing line will be is anyones guess but sure to include the Southern Palm beaches. Factors to include are 1) there will be less of a Northerly component as the event progresses and 2) NE winds tend to help bring swellage further South.

POLAR ICE MELTING 30 YEARS AHEAD OF SCHEDULE
So all you with the big SUV's, the doubters, the who cares we're all going to die folks, should know that the BEST polar scientists -not the BUSH scientists predicted ice free summer in the polar region by 2090, now they are saying 2058, some 30 years faster than computer models predicted a few years ago.
Help on the way? NO! One scientist said not unless we have the collective will to make BIG CHANGES NOW!
Feeling lucky you CO2 spewing PUNKS?
