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.

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.

A quick update for Tropical Storm Bertha:
Some lines from Bertha will be arriving now through mid-week at spots above the Bahamas shadow. Since Bertha is moving rather quickly and isn't too powerful, swell potential is limited. That being said, standouts in the Space Coast and north will see waves in the chest+ range. Winds are forecast to be offshore for the peak on Tuesday, too. It will drop off rapidly on Wednesday and be just about flat on Thursday.
Go get some!
