This update effective around 10 AM EST January 6th. We are starting to take a closer look at the wind and swell forecast. Possible Fun Surf Alert setting up for portions of the SE U.S. Coast starting around Mid-Week as the winds begin to die down.

It appears that the initial swell forecast from the AZORES Low several days ago is a BUST. Could be wrong but not seeing it on the buoys. This is the NOAA 24HR Swell forecast showing some 15-18 second swell periods propagating towards the Islands. One would expect to see periods of 10 seconds or longer on the West Bermuda Buoy by now and its just not there. We will continue to monitor throughout the day today to see if it shows up. 2017-01-06_102705
