Joyce might be a skank.

I hear ya about the land-locked thing and totally agree. Kinda took living near the ocean for granted for the 5 years I was there, but now that I've been away from it for almost 20 years, I realize my mistake.
Anyway, 3 cheers for the late summer wave machine. Let's go clean and green!
Well, on Wednesday its saying Chest high and clean for my beach which basically translates to head-high barrels with the jetty. Magic Seaweed has Tuesday (??) as a 5 star day basically all day, which i find surprising. Good thing i have basically all week off from preseason to finally get a bit of a tropical storm swell.
looks like tuesday and wednesday are gonna be the days....lets hope this holds! also have the 5 star for down here which is very rare
From the 5pm AST NHC discussion on Joyce:
SATELLITE DATA INDICATE THAT THE CENTER OF JOYCE HAS UNEXPECTEDLY
Sounds like Madonna, minus the "unexpectedly" modifier...
THE DEEP CONVECTION...WHICH WAS EARLIER THOUGHT TO
BE PARTIALLY COVERING THE CENTER...HAS BEEN CARRIED FAR TO THE
NORTHWEST ALONG WITH A STRONG MID-LEVEL CYCLONIC CIRCULATION...
LEAVING THE LOW-LEVEL CENTER BEHIND...
ONE OF TWO OPTIONS SEEMS PLAUSIBLE IN THE SHORT TERM WITH REGARD TO
THE INTENSITY FORECAST. A NEW LOW-LEVEL CENTER COULD FORM IN
ASSOCIATION WITH THE MID-LEVEL CYCLONIC CENTER AND BECOME DOMINANT.
THE OTHER POSSIBILITY IS THAT NO NEW CENTER WILL FORM AND JOYCE
So, not the most robust of forecasts, but if Joyce can survive the next 24-48 hours, some of those early/mid week swell forecasts should verify.
NOAA has updated their max winds forecast... looks like IF she does restrengthen, it won't be until after she rounds the bend... there's too much dry air in her vicinity right now.
Still hoping for the best though.
The days from August 20th to September 10th are my favorite 30 days to be in Jersey.
31 minus 20 = 11
BUT Aug 21-23rd DID feel like 6 days, and Labor Day weekend always feels like 4.5 days, we'll all agree that the following Tuesday feels like 3 days, then Sept 5th is Giants opener, so that only feels like a half day, though the 6th feels like 2.5 days, and that 8-9th weekend always feels like 3.5 days.
Yes! - I agree, August 20 - Sept 10 are my favorite 30 days too!
Wow, i need to find something else to do next summer. There was pretty good swell up until and on Memorial Day and then all of a sudden it just went flat all summer except for some wind swell here and there. Now its all picking up again around Labor Day.
I know this always happens but this year just seemed a lot worse than the last few. Hurricanes need to start sooner like in July next year.
