Palm Beach Surf Forecast, Updated local surf forecast for SE Florida

Updated: March 5, 2015 - REWIND: Some small windchop blew in. along with some man-o-war.  Barely rideable, but it's been warm and really nice at the beach! 

ON THE MAPS:  Cold front pushing east across the country will move into Florida and stall right over us.  Behing the front a nice fetch of NE winds will send a swell before the front weakens.  High pressure then builds in and keeps winds on the breezy side with choppy surf in store for a few days.


THURSDAY:  Knee-thigh high SSE windchop.  Wind SSE 15kts.

FRIDAY: Wind goes light and waves drop to knee high or less.

SATURDAY:  NE swell pushes in chest high or so.  Wind now looks like it will come too, blowing it out mostly. There still could be a time of lighter winds Saturday morning with the swell filling in before the wind. The farther south, the less wind on it.

SUNDAY: NE wind turning more ENE.  Waist to chest high choppy surf.

MONDAY:  Wind turns SE and drops some. Surf drops to a choppy knee-thigh high.

Long Ranger Surfcast:  Not a whole lot of clean surf for march. At least rideable waves are in the forecast.  The second half of March could see some cold weather return. Stay tuned!

Next update: FRIDAY
