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

Updated: May 31, 2015 - Surf forecast for the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast.

REWIND: Nice swell filled in upcoast the past few days. Waist to chest high, cleaner in the mornings, onshore in the afternoons but word was it was fun.


High pressure will weaken some, winds will slacken but stay onshore.  Off in the atlantic a low pressure trough is keeping a long easterly fetch pointed at Florida. Swell from this will start to fill in uopcoast late Friday. Bahamas shadow will keep PBC flat through the weekend but at least waves will be within reach.


MONDAY:  Knee high or less PBC.  Waist plus east swell Martin County northward. High tide around 8am, low 2pm.  Light wind in the morning with clean conditions, then onshore seabreeze kicks it making it a little choppy int he afternoon.  swell fades some through the day. Wind ESE 5-15kts.

TUESDAY: Calm wind in the morning, Knee-thigh high longboard leftovers upcoast. Knee or less PBC.

WEDNESDAY: Pretty much flat. But watching the tropics.

Long Ranger Surfcast:  Models still trying to pull a low out of the NW caribbean late in the week.  GFS and Euro not agreeing on the details, but both show something getting pulled up. GFS much stronger and puts it in the Bahamas by Friday night. So possible waves sometime Thursday through Saturday.  Nothing definite yet, just be on alert and Stay tuned!
