Detailed Surf forecast for the Palm Beaches and Treasure Coast:
Rewind: Fun weekend of surf. Waist high satruday, sunday some spots were checking in at head high, clean in the morning. Check out photos from Hybrid Photography on Saturday:
Weather Synopsis: Cold front pushed south with low pressure developing offshore of the carolinas. A small fetch forming will send a small swell around knee-waist high, better at the lower tide.
Water Temps: Lake Worth: 77, Sebastian 69.
MONDAY: Northeast leftover swell waist high, possibly bigger in the morning then dropping some through the day. Wind light offshore in the morning turning light onshore in the afternoon putting some texture on it. Best at the lower tide late morning. High tide by the end of the day will probably drown it out. Low tide 11am.
TUESDAY: Surf drops more knee-thigh high with a light onshore wind. barely breaking for the dawn patrol with the high tide, then probably longboardable by the noon low tide. Wind ENE 10kts
WEDNESDAY: Wind turns SSE 15kts. A choppy knee high NE swell mixed with a building thigh high or so south windchop.
THURSDAY: New low forms off the coast and could send another small or even refraction swell depending on the positioning of it. Thursday may start off small but build through the day. Wind will stay gusty and offshore all day.
FRIDAY: Valentines day swell! Medium period NE swell from the low in the 'nook. Waist to chest high. Offshore winds and clean. Don't get in too much trouble. LOL
SATURDAY: Possibly a longer period swell building in as the low pulls away and clears Hatteras.
LOOKING AHEAD, LONG RANGE FORECAST: Models showing some good potential with that low moving past Hatteras and out to sea. This would send a longer period pulse to us Saturday if it happens. Another potential low spinning off the jersey coast and moving southeast looks promising right now around the 18th or 19th. These things seem to change a lot though so stay tuned.
The NAO and AO staying positive or neutral through mid February. I think this pattern will stick around for just about the whole month, if not a little longer.
