Florida Forecast

(UPDATE BELOW IN BOLD) 

The forecast for this week is pretty tricky due to the number of features impacting our area. Tuesday, watch for increasing North swell. The buoys upcoast should start picking up energy all day and through the evening peaking in very early Wednesday morning at nearly 8 feet at 8 seconds from almost straight north. The incoming swell then will start to turn more NE’ly and the period will increase to about 12 seconds as the low’s ground swell begins arriving. This longer period energy will top out in the 8-10 foot range on Thursday afternoon and slowly fade in to the weekend. The next cold front arrives right around the time the ground swell starts to peak, with a North windswell growing in it’s wake. This next hard-tilt North swell will hit at about 8 feet at 8-9 seconds, making it potentially better than the one earlier in the week. All in all, a lot of waves, with a great chance of seeing waves way down in to Broward and Miami-Dade. Palm Beach north will be biggest, especially during the NE ground swell.

Tuesday: Flat to perhaps a small bump arriving before dark.

Wednesday: Looks good for increasing swell all day. Up to head high at stand out spots with offshore/side-offshore winds.

Thursday: Palm Beach County sees solid groundswell in the shoulder to overhead range with offshore winds. Broward and Palm Beach might see some of this action, though the direction looks more NE than N. The last time this set up occurred, the swell made it all the way down south. ***UPDATE 2/12/2015*** Swell has made it all the way down south. Broward and Dade seeing solid surf. Palm Beach solid overhead. The forecast was way under-called. East Canaveral Buoy topped out at 19' at 14 seconds!

Friday: Reinforcing shot of North swell gets filtered all the way down south, while Palm Beach and north sees a combo swell of NE and N swell. Up to head high down south, but bigger in PBC. Winds looks offshore/side-offshore again.***UPDATE 2/12/2015*** North swell not looking as big as initially forecast

Saturday: Very small down south, but still some nice leftovers in PBC. Up to shoulder high+ and fading.

Sunday: If the models prove correct, another bigger North swell to start building. Seriously? I hope so.

*NOTE* This forecast is subject to the timing/strength of the fronts. Things may slide a little bit back and trend bigger/smaller as we move from forecast to actual. That being said, looks like a good week to be a surfer in South Florida.

Looking for YOUR input!

Hola,
After maintaining the site as is for awhile, I'd like to make a few changes. One was instead of a new topic created by an Admin with 'members' commenting, it is a posting where you can comment through Disquis (which includes Facebook and other social media options) Most of the members are on FB already, and it would be seen across a wider platform.
I'd like to expand the classified section for boards sold, and revamp the photo gallery where those invited can showcase their own galleries.
What ideas do you have to improve DadeCoSurf.com so it meets your needs and matches your interests?
