Do we have a Powerful Ground Swell approaching next week?   You Bet!

The size of the swell waves may not be big, but we do have a chance at having Powerful Period  with waist to stomach high waves?  Why?  Look at the Period chart image.  (2nd image)

Moving swell chart frozen for Tuesday , August 5 2014 at 6 AM, thanks to Magicseaweed.com's nice model version. The swell is coming from the Southeast (Caribbean),  and even though it only shows 2 to 3 foot swell waves, the fetch of the period is what excites me. (fetch is the distance in miles that a swell stretches from Point A to Point B, if u will)   And the fetch is a lot wider than the distance from Key West to Cape Cod as the crow flies.  And what I really like, is how uniform and thick the bands of the swell period are shown in the color changes.

Anyhow, we’ll see what happens.

NOTE: I just added the line so those, new to surf charting jargon like fetch, could see the visual.  I don’t mean to insult the Intelligence of the rest of you 🙂

And yes, the swell looks like it may be closer to chest high, even with 2-5 mph onshore winds Tuesday afternoon.  If the models hold up 🙂  And Wednesday, or the following day, could be solid offshore glass in the 3 foot at 9 second range, which could easily be stomach to chest high or better in Satellite anyhow !
