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

Updated: May 28, 2015 - Surf forecast for the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast.

REWIND: Nice streak of windchop. Generally waist high.


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.


FRIDAY:  Wind drops some but still enough for a knee-thigh high wave. longer period swell starts coming in upcoast so bigger  stuart north. Wind East 10-15kts.

SATURDAY-SUNDAY: Small for most of PBC but upcoast will see an east swell hitting. Waist to chest high with less wind.  Not clean by any means but not totally blown out either, especially in the mornings. Swell should last through Monday from Stuart northward, maybe some trickling down into north county late Friday or Saturday.

Long Ranger Surfcast:  Models want to pull something out of the Caribbean which would increase our onshore winds again and give us the chance for some waves late in the week. Nothing set in stone yet but something to keep an eye on. Stay tuned!
