Report: Swell angle is good but the wave period leaves a bit to be desired, and the winds are only now beginning to flirt with their turn from the S-SSW to the SW, although it looks like a number of real-time sensors in the northern Monmouth County area are logging legit SW-WSW. Fingers crossed that we see that happen sooner than later because this swell does not look to have a lot of resolve and may not hold through the evening. As always, I recommend you keep your eyes on the flags and online resources to make the best go-time call.
Prediction: Monderate E-ENE winds look to return late tonight through Wednesday, maybe stirring up a less-than-significant windswell/windchop, again with a relatively short period. Unfortunately, winds look like they are likely to swing sideshore S-SSE instead of getting pulled more offshore in the wake of the front on Thursday.
Extended Forecast: There is potential mid-period E background swell showing up on some models for Friday. Check back late tomorrow or Thursday for an update.
