Surf forecast for the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast.
REWIND: It's been flat.
The surf forecast is looking a lot more optimistic now. Low pressure is developing off central Florida and it will strengthen Thursday then move northeast with a nice fetch on the north side of the low, pointed back toward Florida. This will send a nice mid-period swell our way, will the while having light to offshore winds and clean conditions. Nothing terribly big, but since the swell will be generated from close-by, it should have a good punch and consistency to it.
WAVEDAY HIGHLIGHTS: THURSDAY: Small south swell. FRIDAY-SATURDAY: Building Clean NE swell. SUNDAY: Choppy swell
FRIDAY: Knee/Waist high clean NE swell in the morning, building some in the afternoon but the wind will come onshore and blow it out. Upcoast will be bigger but wind coming onshore earlier there. Wind AM: NW 5-10kts, PM NE 10-15kts.
SATURDAY: Waist to chest high NE swell. Bigger upcoast. Clean and fun. Wind AM: NW 5-10, PM: NE 5-10kts.
SUNDAY: Building windchop/swell as a weak front drops south. Waist high early building to chest high in the afternoon. Wind NE 15-20kts.
MONDAY: Waist to maybe chest high southeast windchop. Wind SE 20-25kts. Dying some in the afternoon.
TUESDAY: Knee/thigh high Se windchop/NE swell mix. Wind SE 10-15kts.
LONG RANGE SURFCAST
Models looking a lot better now in the long range. Another front with a good push of NE winds around the 3rd/4th. Local winds in question though. Right now front stalls just to our north while a weak low forms on the front. That would work for us because it'll calm the winds near up while they rage up north. Still too early to tell though. Another front a few days after that may bring more waves, but possibly not clean. At least we'll have something rideable as we head into March. March and April usually have a lot of onshore winds and chop. But they also can get some good bombing swells.
