Forecast from PetePosted May 18th, 2012 01:23 AM
Whoa- culture shock. After months of asylum in Maui heading back to the mainland to see family and friends . Currently in LA waiting for a flight to Ft Laudy. Been checking out the models for my two week stay in Fla land and things look interesting (at least for this time of year). Firstly we have a Nice SE fetch building in the Carib (from a very large Atlantic high pressure system) which will hopefully send some backround swell to those lucky enough to live or drive above the Bahama blockage. That should last for a few days if it gets enough traction and the winds crank enough. Secondly we have a decent NE fetch setting up along the Carolinas Elongated but narrow. . Models have been all over the place on this one and a few days ago it was looking kinda promising (Remember the May swell 5 years ago). Anyhows the interesting feature is a weak low that builds off the Carolinas which rides up to Nova Scotia by late week. Thats when things get interesting and models at 164 hrs out hint of a retrograde push back towards Fla land. If the stars align we may get NE swellage sometime Memorial day weekend. Not to mention closer to home a weak syetem is forecast to develop in the Fla straights and bring us SE winds late next week as well. None of this is guaranteed but keep your eyes and ears out for surfables soon. Wyatt and Rod both asked me to bring waves . Not going to guarantee anything but will bring positive vibes and hope to the SoFlo surf community. Surf seems to follow me so wax up those boards and lets get ready to rumble (Dodge dem pesky weekenders Memorial day weekend)

A bit of cold front is passing through our area tomorrow afternoon. Winds will pick up out of the East as we head in to the weekend, creating some rideable chop. Doesn't look like it will blow too hard, so I'm doubting it will get much better than thigh-waist high. Either way- there will be some waves! Look for that event to be complete by Sunday with light winds and calm seas forecast for the start of next week.
If you've got the itch real bad- there's a little swell showing way up coast. Winds look to be favorable for Thursday, so it might be worth a little trip with the right equipment/attitude.

Winds are onshore, but not generating much surf. Look for wind to come up over the weekend and early next week. We'll have surf in the coming days. When, depends on how this scenario plays out.
From the NWS;
...an area of moisture and cloudiness will move northwest from the southwest North Atlantic and move over the Florida Straits tonight and Saturday and then over all of South Florida Sunday and into next week.
Winds really look to start cranking early next week.
Crappy winter turning in to quite the rideable spring. I'll take it!
