Buoy Update Another GALE Forecast Mid-ATLC Next 96

Here's the latest forecast update. The swell energy South Hatteras Buoy from previous OBX Low looks to have peaked yesterday morning  at around 8 Feet 10 seconds out of the NNE down to 4 Feet 10 seconds early this morning. East Canaveral showing another shot of 10 second periods this morning around 4 Feet 10-11 seconds and near shore Canav showing 3 Feet 10 seconds. For our Island followers South Bermuda showing a nice shot of swell energy produced by Low. Buoy has increased from 1 Foot most of yesterday to just over 10 Feet this morning around 10 seconds. Latest wind forecast shows some increasing SE flow so could be a fun size bump coming. We will monitor the PR Buoy next for trends.
On the map is another Low headed for the Mid-ATLC next 96 hours or so that could put another bump in the water.
2016-04-26_062645Latest wind forecast for Saturday showing decent shot of NE winds similar to the Low that just moved off the OBX a few days ago. There are some negatives to the current forecast track as models move this one up towards Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. We will be monitoring future model runs over the next 48 hours or so for changes and obviously we will track it in Real-Time this weekend as it exits the coast so stay tuned in for that. 
Quick Look at the extended. This is a LONG WAYS OUT so lots can change between now and then. Image for next Thursday showing a decent shot at some SMALL ESE trade wind swell mixed with some Southerly Suck-up compliments of High Pressure.
2016-04-26_064041There are negatives with this as well. Image is for Saturday May 7th for WaveMasters Surf Contest Jax Bch Pier. AGAIN long ways out so lots can change but for now if this verifies looking dinky to flat for contest.
Thats all for now. Stay tuned for the next update as we track this next incoming Low setting up this Friday.
