Forecast from bradswellsPosted August 3rd, 2012 05:55 PM
Feeling more tropical in South Florida this week! We have a low over the Bahamas, which has been sending bands of rain today. The NHC is giving it a 20% chance of developing and it's tracking toward the NW. If it intensifies and takes that sort of track, it could be interesting.
Ernesto is tracking well to our south, but should help to bump up our winds as we get in to the work week. A wave off Africa is developing, which will be something else to watch.
It's that time of year... Two tropical swells down here in June. July sucked. Let's see what August brings.
In the meantime, winds build in to Monday-Tuesday with seas coming up into the rideable range.

Sorry for the lack of forecasts during the last few weeks. I got married and went on my honeymoon...
Now that I'm back- here's the low down. Basically no surf in the forecast for us in Dade County. A little 12 second swell is slated to show upcoast Thursday and Friday and last in to the weekend. It might be fun if you have a good small wave board and the right attitude.
In the tropics: There's a wave off Africa that looks promising for development. It's a long way off, but maybe worth watching!

With love from Zanzibar. The waves are a kilometer off shore breaking on the reef. Today I'm taking some kiteboarding lessons. Next week meeting a friend who has a couple of extra surfboards. Here's some pics to tie you over through the flatness.

Debbie has finished her cross over land is back over water. She lost some punch and is being inhibited by dry air. Despite this, there's still a good swath of solid north winds in our swell window. As any Dade Co surfer knows, anytime a storm is in that magic NW/N/NNE window, we stand a chance of getting the goods. The hardest thing to tell is if it's blown long enough, hard enough, and from the right direction to really make a swell.
This storm has potential to thread the needle, so I'm thinking we might start to see something Thursday. I'd doubt that it would stay in the window long enough for Friday- at least down here. There looks to be some more NE swell put down as the storm moves off, so upcoast could be fun.
