Surf Forecast 5-9-2014

Quick little forecast:

Spring weather is upon us and our normal springtime change-of-seasons windchop is here. Winds should be in the 15-20 kt range for the upcoming weekend and in to next week. A low is going to skirt the coast near the Bahamas shifting the wind more NE early next week.

Waves are in the flat to waist high range depending on tide and sandbars. Look for the tide to drain a bit more, then a high tide at about 5pm.

Surf forecast

Nice low setting up as we speak out in the North Atlantic.  A nice captured fetch is aiming some good winds at us . Downside is that it will be pretty far from us (mostly Canadian Maritimes) .  This said low is centered around 38 deg N and 56 deg W. I like the elongated NE fetch in the 30-35 knt range . Been tracking this low with low confidence the past week but the latest Satellite pic makes me breathe a little easier . Thursday PM and Friday (the peak of the swell ) could produce fun ridables in the NE exposed spots upcoast. I'm thinking waist to chest maybe + sets with lightish South winds turning more SW into Friday . Drops off pretty fast into Saturday but still could be fun in the Am . Pau (done) by Sunday.  Stoked to be back home and get some Fla action.

Surf Forecast

Pete here doing a stand in surf forecast (yea its been awhile) . My vested interest is I'll be beck in the ol stomping grounds in Two weeks . Be in Miama for a week for a family reunion. Hoping to get in da watta.  Spring time of year in the air. First we have a low level East windswell setting for upcoast spots this weekend. More of note is a fairly nice elongated N/NE fetch setting up next Wednesday from Georgia coast all the way up to New England. before you get too excited about this little event remember its a long way out and models tend to change and be unreliable at 125 hrs out and further . Still this event is worth taking notice as the winds will be fairly light in South Fla later next week. The said fetch is a result of a large high pressure (not low pressure ) centered around West edge of new York getting pinched and elongating. There might be a nice fetch of 30-35 knt winds pointed in the Fla direction. One minus is the relative width and breadth of this fetch (its a skinny one) , Mitigated partially  by the fetch length and duration.  Something to keep an eye and ear out for starting Wed and even into next weekend. Happy Easter hunting
