Report Pete

Tuesday morning thread

No surprises with the morning reports. Palm Beaches pretty much out of control. Lake worth pier getting the bottom scrapped and cleaned by bomber sets. Delray bombing, whitewater way outside. Rodger looked at HH and didn't go out (not really picking it up), saw more activity going Southaways. Initial cams for south give an indication that it is breaking and people are out. 17 sec hits now arriving on the Ft Pierce Buoy, yea baby!!!!!

Forecast Pete

Very interesting scenario.

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.
