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

Updated: March 1st, 2015 - REWIND: Some fun windchop over the weekend. Lots of waves, hope you got some! Bigger north with more swell behind it.  

ON THE MAPS:  Warm front lifts north through the rest of the state. Weak wind pattern with just a light onshore flow, picking up some in the afternoon with the seabreeze. Backdoor cold front pushes down the carolina coast setting up some NE fetch for us before it lifts north as the SE winds pick back up Tuesday/Wednesday.


MONDAY:  Wind lightens up even more. Light east in the morning picking up about 8-12kts with the seabreeze forming in the afternoon. Still some leftover NE swell around waist to chest high for Treasure Coast, biggest in the morning.  Knee-waist high still for PBC dropping through the day.  Upcoast is the call, should be pretty fun.

TUESDAY:   ESE wind picks up to 15-20kts. This will build in another Waist high SE windchop. Smallest in the morning then building in the afternoon. Could have some NE swell mixed in.

WEDNESDAY:  SE wind, turning SSE still blowing around 15-20kts will keep a waist high south windswell going. Some NE swell will mix in too making it peaky.

THURSDAY:  Knee-thigh high SSE windchop.  Wind SSE 10-15kts.

FRIDAY: Another surge of NE swell and wind.

WEEKEND: Larger NE swell with wind as a front moves south. Keeping an eye on the possibility that the front could stall to our north which would keep the wind away but still send the swell.

Long Ranger Surfcast:  March is going to give us a lot of windchop to start.  At least it keeps waves in the forecast.  There will  be some clean-up days though, but for the most part, a lot of windchop. The second half of March could see some cold weather return, and some groundswells. Stay tuned!
