Update at 8:30 PM Thursday. The swell finally hit 3.3 feet at 12 seconds at 120 buoy, and winds were NNE to N , unlike the 7 mph west winds that were at the 20 mile up until 1:30, so that may have held the swell back.
NOTE: For Friday, The winds have switched to a NW to NNW direction for our offshore winds (they were going to be SW to West), so , only expect NW winds (which are still okay for Satellite, but if they go NNW, then 4rth St North is better, but anywhere North of Minuteman Cswy for NNW winds. So down south may still be best if it’s NW, and up until 9 am.probably)
End 8:30 PM Update
Today, TS Julia who literally formed over our heads the last couple days (rare for 20-30 years) and TS Ian way out in North Atlantic, bring us some nice waist to maybe chest by 10 am or if slow to arrive, by noon in Satellite Beach with glass until maybe 1 pm. The 20 mile buoy had 11 & 14 second reading back to back at 8-9 am this morning, which means, 2 hours from then or so it hits our beaches. Thus the 11 or 12 Pm prediction to hit the beaches with power and some nice size 🙂
Saturday should be waist to chest and offshore down south (and maybe up North offshore till 8 or 9am or so if it is truly SW winds). Offshore down south in Satellite till maybe 9 or 10 am.
Sunday maybe some waist high leftovers with more glass than Saturday.
