Tuesday 07/17/12 Report and Prediction update

Report:  Still some lingering mid-period ESE groundswell out there in the thigh- to waist-high range or so.  The sets are intermittent and the sandbars are a bit screwed up (flattened-out), but there are a few breaks here and there holding some form; you just have to go looking for it.

Prediction:  I would suggest that wave quality might improve a bit as the tide drains, and particularly on the low-incoming tide after 1PM, but there is a good chance, with all this hot weather, that the winds will turn S-SSE this afternoon.  Monitor sources of local weather for up-to-date wind information.

Extended Forecast: More of the same for Wednesday, with small mid-period background swell, offshore/side-offshore winds, hot weather, and a high tide swamping things out early in the day.  The heat wave is predicted to break late Wednesday/early Thursday, with potentially violent T-storms coming in the mix late tomorrow.  Some onshore winds Thursday-Friday may push up a new windswell for late work-week/early weekend.  Check back for updates as details develop.
