What Size and Form can we expect Tuesday morning and day? Maybe chest high and glassy…
JUST KIDDING :)
WOW! The 20 mile buoy hit 11.5 feet at 15 seconds at 10 PM tonight.
It will be overhead for sure ! How big? My call for Tuesday morning and day is 3 to 6 foot overhead is the possibility with possible bigger sets. More like 3 -4 foot overhead on the bigger sets at the Pier and in Cocoa Beach. Satellite Beach, if the storm fully comes in tomorrow, I don’t think the winds will be too strong West at the 120 to hold it back, but at the beach, it may delay it a half day. But being optimistic, I believe in Satellite Beach we have a good chance at some double overhead waves.
Winds Tuesday should be in the 18-20 mph range at daybreak from the NW, and slowing down, tidbits, to maybe 12 mph WNW at 6 PM.
Air temp high should be around 64 at Noon or 1 PM, water temp 68-69 degrees. The sun pops out by 9 am, and should be completely sunny by 11 or 12 noon. High tide going low is at 9:15 for the Port, and 9:30 in Satellite Beach. So I like the noon approach where the winds are down to 15 mph, and mid tide is 12:30.
Wednesday will be very cold (for Florida surfing weather , not for Snowbirds or transplants). The low temp for Wednesday at daybreak is 47 and the high is 58 around 1 or 2 PM. Which is also the best time to paddle out (in my opinion, cause I like high going low mid-tide best in Satellite, cause I ride a long board).
Surf size Wednesday, if there is no delay from the winds holding the swell back, should be 2 to 4 foot overhead with NW winds in the 14 to 6 mph range, going from daybreak to 6 PM.
Big glassy surf expected for Thursday and decent for Friday also. This weather pattern up above is doing a nice job giving us offshore winds too, praise God for that one too!
The photos below are from a NE swell on November 10 2011 that was 6 feet at 11-12 seconds. We had a few 12-14 foot face sets that day in Satellite. I shot many double overhead sequence rides, and some smaller shots, like the barrel that I caught the guy in below (was a 6 shot sequence)
The barrel photo page , that I posted on at Magicseaweed.com back in 2011 is here: http://magicseaweed.com/photoLab/viewPhoto.php?photoId=257875&browseSession=5d26f2039192deb5ba85c69b7f593ddd
