Okay, our incoming swell from the last 2 days I believe is about to deliver the ground swell portion by noon on Thursday. That’s when the moving period chart catches up with around 9 or 10 seconds, which hits the beaches around 11 or 12. Winds should turn SSW by late morning and SW by 12 or 1 Pm in the 15 to 20 mph range. Swell size should be around chest to shoulder high down south by 2nd light, Hightowers, etc., and hopefully waist high here at the Cape. Could be bigger sets, but it depends what we see overnight coming thru the 120 buoy. We did have some waves hit the 120 at 11 seconds but not real consistently, so its hard to say what the power will be. But I’m optimistic it will be a lot of fun, and a little challenging to catch waves.
Friday morning the swell weakens at the 120, but we may still see some waist high sets or bigger down south, with NW winds in the 10 to 12 mph range.
Saturday morning a new long period swell hits as the Friday swell dissipates, so there ought to be something ridable as they pass the baton to each other.
We’ll cover more as the Saturday swell gets closer.
Enjoy Thursday afternoon!
