Updated: March 26, 2016 - Surf forecast for the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast.
REWIND: Dumpy windchop continued on Sunday. knee/waist high was all.
High pressure will drop on top of us this week killing the winds and making for tranquil, hot weather.
A gale center now dubbed 90L is moving north just east of the Bahamas toward Bermuda where it will bang a right before it reaches Bermuda over the next few days. It could become an early subtropical storm if it gets a lot better organized, either way it's in a good position to send an east swell toward Florida. The Bahamas will block most of the swell to Palm Beach County but the Treasure Coast northward will see a nice push of east swell for a few days. Nothing huge but a fun chest/shoulder high will be coming in. Local winds are looking good too. High pressure will drop down right down on top of us and make winds light and variable Tue-Thu. The peak of the swell looks to be Tuesday, but since the low will be out there a while, the swell will last most of the week and only drop a bit each day, and change in direction from east to ENE.
Our first invest of the season! 90L probably won't become an early tropical system but will send swell to east coast pic.twitter.com/RNS2nSEwgK
