WEEKLY WAVE FORECAST
Surf forecast for late Nov., 2014
Your National Weather Service Marine Weather forecast calls for: “HIGH PRESSURE WILL EXTEND ACROSS THE AREA THROUGH THE WEEKEND. THE HIGH WILL THEN MOVE OFF THE EAST COAST SATURDAY AHEAD OF A WARM FRONT THAT SHIFTS OVER THE REGION SUNDAY. A COLD FRONT WILL SHIFT THROUGH THE AREA LATE MONDAY…FOLLOWED BY HIGH PRESSURE INTO THE MIDDLE OF NEXT WEEK.”
After a strong cold front plunged into the South-east over the middle-part of the work week, we see flat surf to end the week Friday, Nov. 19. Big changes are in store for your weekend, as strong south-east flow is expected starting Saturday into Sunday this week. Folly loves waves from the south-east.
As high pressure moves off to our north-east and a warm front (south-winds) moves over our area for Sunday. This unsettled weather pattern brings north-east winds on Saturday, when swell starts out small and high angled, but should build some throughout the day into the waist high (plus) range late afternoon on the incoming tide. Sunday sees south-east winds increasing, and waves along with it. We see chest to shoulder high wind-swell/ground swell comb fill in with moderate, increasing on-shore flow. It will be lumpy, choppy, but plenty of swell in the water Sunday (Nov. 23) into Monday (Nov. 24), as a cold front approaches and winds switch to south-west. After the cold front Monday night, some we are calling for continued on-shore flow and leftover swell in the waist to stomach high range as surf drops and cleans up. Swell for middle of nest week depends on the position of the high and what swell might be leftover.
With strong offshore winds predicted on Wed. behind the cold front, it seems the surf might fade out for mid-week (Wed. Nov. 26) into Thanksgiving (Nov. 27). We’ll keep you updated. Meanwhile, stay warm and get some work done. Keep in mind, with the recent cold snap, water temp has dropped to around 58*. With the southerly flow Sunday and Monday, I expect the water to bump up to 60 or 61*. Get some. –Bates Hagood, Ocean Surf Shop
