1:20 PM Tuesday update. Ouch, this swell, deceived us all ! My bad ! But it is offshore right now at 2nd light as of the 12:58 PM reading, 4 mph NW winds. This morning, is was all warbly , variable disjumbled winds that did start out offshore. Get it now, while it’s chest high down south and offshore 🙂
End of 1:20 PM Update, Tuesday.
At 5 AM and 5:45 AM, Tuesday morning, here is what we have: The Winds are really strange (almost opposite of what weather.com said last night, MSW winds I don’t usually use, the day of) but I think they’re gonna work out. At Sebastian Inlet buoy, they were SSW at 5 AM and are now SW, so perfect down there.
At the 2nd light wind gage (on the Patrick AFB), the winds show North at 4 mph (at 4:58 AM).
At the Trident Pier (the onshore buoy at the Cape n Jetty Park) shows NNE at 1.9 mph.
So I think, that at surf time, daybreak, winds will be NW and turn more West by 9 am, at the North end of county, and 2nd light I think will come around NW, so at very light 2-5 mph, so we could have our epic surf this morning 🙂
If it does go offshore as I believe, we should have waist to maybe, chest high with bigger sets at the Pier, and Shoulder high to 1 foot overhead plus sets in Satellite Beach. High tide at 9:13 Am in Satellite, but with a 4 foot at 12-14 second period swell, I think the swell will break right thru high tide wherever you surf.
It will be cloudy, so skinning it may be chilly 🙂 Water temp is 62.6 and will hit 63 today. Air temp is 57 at 5:45 but will hit 64 by 10 am.
The waves will only be offshore till 10 am I believe, so get it early !
