Forecast from bradswellsPosted January 3rd, 2013 06:42 PM
Happy New Year!
Looks like we have a mild cold front coming through tonight. The forecast calls for the front to be nearly stationary until being pushed out by a stronger front early next week.
There's not too much behind this front, but it's possible that some spots will see a sniff of North swell down in south florida and miami. I'd look for that sometime tomorrow. Looks minimal through the weekend.
Next chance will come midweek with a swell starting to fill in from the NE then clocking more eastely as the week progresses. Probably head high or so in the Palm Beaches during the early part of the swell late monday and Tuesday. You'll have to go further north to get the size later. Upcoast around Sebastian/Melbourne should be solid head high+ wednesday or thursday, but winds are looking to be a problem as of now.

It looks like Brevard County scored again. I hope the DadeCo crew has a wave filled Christmas and lots of cheer for the new year. Post some pics of your last session in the gallery. ~G

Here's a quick little update on the waves...
It's been pretty small lately down here- it has been marginally surfable at times when the wind and tide combine, but nothing worth mentioning.
There's a cold front headed our way for Thursday and Friday, so our chances for waves are slightly better- hence the update. Look for winds to continue to blow outta the South with the approaching front. As the front draws near and passes, we'll see the winds clock around to the North. On Friday, the winds look to be moving towards the NE and sustain for 24 hours in the 20kt range. Looks like Friday in to Saturday will see the best chance for chop down here. Maybe a small south line pre-frontal, then wait for the build from the norherly flow. Possible little groundswell late Thursday/Friday AM, too. I'm guessing it will get maybe waist-stomach...
Upcoast has a NE swell underlying the frontal conditions, so Friday/Saturday should see pretty solid surf. Probably about head high in the Sebastian area, but the wind will be on it. Looks like winds should be on a dying trend, so you might get lucky and have it die fast or not blow as hard as forecast. Sunday should have some fun leftovers with light wind.
So there ya have it. A little something out there if you'll be looking to surf in the next few days. Looks like winter is starting to set-in up north, so we should start to feel the effects soon too. I'm thinking we'll be seeing some nice winter-time set ups soon...

There is a concern that the city of Fort Lauderdale wants to drop some concrete just off the beach to stop the erosion happening close to A1A. The fact is - IS DOES NOT WORK!! And will only increase erosion to the north and south of the breakwater.
Please email the city council to voice your opinion on how the breakwater will destroy the surf break. Here are their addresses:
