Weekend update

Weekend update, still residual swell from the coastal low we had the past few days.  I'm headed up the road in a few to look for cleanies.  Looks like we also get swell from the tropical storm off Bermuda somit may not be a bad weekend to surf after all. Winds range from light offshore up North to light onshore down hea.  Expected to turn Light S and a mild Seabreeze in the PM.

There is hope further out.  I have been watching a low in the mid Atlantic the past few days on the long range models (halfway between here and Europa). This system moves in a SE direction (very odd for this region) and sends us E/NE swell midweek. Nothing huge but could be fun somewhere up the road. 

Go surf if you can, Enjoy

September Surf

September continues to bring the goods. Good potential for waves this week.  Like C pick mentioned alot of ifs in the scenario.   For starters models have a nice elongated fetch of NE winds pointed at us starting tomorrow . Its an odd looking skinny fetch but with a long fetch of 30-40 knt winds .  Some wave models are predicting up to 15 ft at 12 sec Wed into Thursday (that remains to be seen)  This should last thru the end of the week but drop of considerably by the weekend (3-4 ft at 9 sec by Sat)  The wild card is the winds. Wed has strong NE winds up the road and lighter but still NE down hea.  Thursday the winds clock more Northerly and lighten. Friday we have the potential for NW winds thru the region but not a lock. Regardless that may be the best day for clean surf although Thursday PM may be worth a mighty consideration.  

For the weekend We have invest 93 riding up the Eastern seaboard and strengthening . Unfortunately it will be moving relatively fast so the potential for waves from this one is questionable.  Anyhows this is turning out tobe one fine Sept. Even the Dolfiners are winning.  Enjoy  Tongue out
