Thursday 08/09/12 Report and Prediction

Report:  Very small and weak background swell today.  Light offshore winds grooming the conditions, but no real lines to speak of so it is difficult to even make my “longboard if you are desperate” recommendation.

Prediction:  Winds will likely come around to the SSE as the day heats up.  S-SSE winds on Friday could push up a weak S windswell, but conditions are predicted to stay sideshore/onshore for the entire day.

Extended Forecast:  A low-pressure/high-pressure cold-front interaction kicking off the SE seaboard should push up a new mid-period ESE swell for the weekend, peaking mid-day Saturday and tapering off into longer-period leftovers for Sunday.  Right now, winds are looking SW-SSW for Saturday, and coming around to more SW-WSW on Sunday.  As always, I recommend you monitor sources of local weather info for up to date wind and swell conditions.
