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

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.


WAVE-DAY HIGHLIGHTS:    MONDAY: Semi-choppy East swell upcoast.  TUE-WED: Clean, fun east swell up upcoast.  THURSDAY: East swell fades upcoast. FRIDAY/SATURDAY: south windswell building

MONDAY: East swell fills in upcoast chest/shoulder high, maybe some trickling down to northern Palm Beach County. Semi-choppy as winds will still be east but not all that strong at 10+kts.

TUESDAY: Upcoast: Chest/shoulder high east swell. Clean in the morning, some light texture in the afternoon as the wind turns SE 10kts. PBC mostly flat but north county possibly a little swell showing at lower tides, some SE texture.

WEDNESDAY:  Upcoast: Chest+ east swell. Clean in the morning with some SE texture developing in the afternoon. Swell fades some though the day.  PBC north county; a little swell showing at lower tides with some SE wind on it.

THURSDAY:  Flat for PBC, but still rideable ENE swell upcoast waist-chest high. Clean in the morning then blownout in the afternoon with southeast winds picking up.

FRIDAY: Possibly building south windswell.



Possibly some south windswell Friday/Saturday as the next cold front approaches.  Then a low moves off hatteras around the 1st which may whip some swell down here as it moves out to sea for the 3/4th.
