Friday 09/14/12 Report and Prediction

Report: Small-scale surf this AM.  Probably knee- to thigh-high.  Light offshore SW winds early have given way to light SSE winds.

Prediction: No significant increase in swell through the day, but a likely increase in SSE winds as the day heats up.

Extended Forecast: TS Nadine is mulling about out there and expected to develop into a cat 1 hurricane early in the weekend, but predicted to move off to the E-ENE.  Still, we should see the gradual development of groundswell mid- or late-day Saturday through Sunday, with some leftovers likely hanging around into early work-week.    Winds might be troublesome, looking to be dominated by N winds Saturday into early Sunday, but might back down later Sunday.  As always, I recommend you monitor sources of local weather for up-to-date wind information.

Looking way ahead, it looks like conditions are setting up for a hard South wind/windswell mid-week.
