Another INVEST Coming ? April Fools Swell Update


What a fun run of surf for many locations in the Atlantic all the way around the rim. Sorry for the delay in updates but my daughter was struck by a Pigmy Rattlesnake over the weekend. She is fine and did not need to have the anti-venom administered. Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers for those who follow me personally.

Latest NOAA OPC 24HR Swell forecast showing NNE swell continuing for the West Atlantic over the next 24-48 hours or so.2017-04-03_085130With the East Atlantic picking up 15-18 second WNW Swell.2017-04-03_085451
Unfortunately the WSW Flow setting up along the U.S. East Coast will hinder the NE Swell height trying to sneak pass the OBX. There is some underlying NE Swell showing on the Buoys this morning and there is an outside chance that some of the energy can make it towards the coast. South Hatteras Buoy showing 7 FEET 11 Seconds out of the NNE.

Buoy showing some long period swell starting to filter in but only about a foot. We will continue to monitor this buoy for upticks in trend next 24 hours or so.
