Tropical Swell will Finally arrive at our Local Beaches… Mid period swell from Hurricane Gert has already began to show at area beaches across the island.. We are expecting the swell to continue to build overnight Tuesday.. By Wednesday midday the swell is forecast to peak, we will see local standout breaks picking up sets well over head… Clean conditions are forecast to start the day with winds from the NNW.. As the morning progress the winds should lighten up before turning SSE around 5 – 10 mph..
Lingering Swell is forecast Thursday with wave heights in the 2′-4′ zone early…

We are looking at a good sized pulse of ENE swell for Election Day and into Wednesday! A strong Low Pressure system is spinning over the Western Atlantic and interacting with High Pressure over the NE Sates. If you look at the Buoy forecast for the 8th below you will see the solid blue line peaking above 6′. The red dot above represents the swell period. You can see that through the early afternoon Tuesday we will see the swell peak 6′-7′ at 12 seconds. Through Wednesday we can see the swell height decrease while the swell period holds just below 12 seconds.. So, the next two days we will see a solid shot of ESE swell hitting the area beaches. With WNW winds forecast conditions should be clean..
Enjoy and surf Safe!

Hurricane Nicole is forecast to move very little over the next several days… We are expecting a shot of swell 3’+ @ 11 seconds Saturday.. So look for wave heights in the 4′ zone..

I don’t think I have even seen a storm track quite like this one before… We are not expecting any swell from this crazy storm..
This storm is forecast to linger off the Jersey Coast for several days… Through the next 48 hours our beaches and local community will be dealing will gusty winds, heavy surf and more than likely some flooding.. If your street is prone to flooding you will want to move your vehicles… Sunday nights High Tide, 10:00pm or so and Monday mornings tide will be the ones to look out for.. The surf may begin to come together some Monday as the winds bend more NNW but still gusty, their will be a few spots doing their thing… Tuesday/Wednesday look pretty good both wind and surf 6′-7’+ and pretty clean…
Stay Safe if you choose to venture out..
The Tropics have finally come alive as we head into the last two weeks of August… Tropical Storm Fiona is trying to hold herself together as she encounters some wind shear.. With sustained winds around 40 mph she is barely a Tropical Storm but as wave starved as we have been we will take anything.. We are expecting a pulse of energy from this system late Wednesday afternoon through Saturday.. Wave heights generally look to be in the 2′-3′ range….
Two other area of interest are Invest 99L and Invest 90L
This area of storms is forecast to intensify slowly as it moves towards the Caribbean over the next several days..
This soon to be storm has me excited… The models have tagged this to be the next Hurricane over the next several days.. With the track towards the middle of the Atlantic it won’t pose any direct risk to life or property but it will send the entire East Coast Swell…. Yes, as early Sunday August 28th the whole East Coast could begin to see SE swell lines hitting the local breaks.. Its really early yet, but who cares its fun to imagine how good it could get… A week of surf over 5′ sounds really, really good!!
