Forecast Overview:

RIGHT NOW Surf Alert 

A frontal system is moving over the region now. The primary low within this system will move north into New England and set up a larger wind field over the​ Western Atlantic and will result in building ESE and SE windswell for the rest of the day. There's another frontal system in the Atlantic that is pushing another E windswell toward our region as well. Winds will have turned SSW and should turn SW then WSW by early evening. 

SATURDAY: Surf Alert High pressure sets up as the frontal system moves offshore before dawn.  Swell peaks and wind turns NNW after midnight. Swell will gradually drop for the rest of the day but should remain fun at south facing spots.  

Check out the 72 HOUR SURF FORECAST below for details.


SUNDAY: The tail end of the frontal system will move over the region and wind turns NE then ENE. Swell drops and form deteriorate.   

Check out the 72 HOUR SURF FORECAST below for details.


NEXT WEEK: Surf Alert Another frontal system moves in on Sunday and Monday, setting our region up for another fun swell event for Tuesday.

Check out the 72 HOUR SURF FORECAST below for details.

The Good News: Spring is here and we are seeing fun surf and gradually warming air and water temps. We can expect a few solid swell events before the Summer Doldrums start in late May or Early June. 

The Bad News: Wind Issues Early Spring is notorious for swell events with limited windows of favorable wind. The trick is to monitor your local wind forecast and plan accordingly. 

THE X-FACTORS As we head deeper into spring we will see a mix of swell events. March is notorious for large, longer-duration swells, particularly from large frontal systems. But we will also see plenty of hit and run, one-day-wonder swell events from locally-generated, fast-moving systems. Right now there are a few storms leftover from Winter in the North Pacific that should develop and move across the US, but these will slowly taper off so those larger swell events will begin to become more infrequent as we head inevitably toward Summer.
