    Looks like that weak front coming across the country might hold her offshore in the Gulfstream. The forecasted window keeps moving East over the past couple days. I really don't want to do the yard work, plus it would be nice to see the entire East Coast get swell.

  2. The subtle change east in the track really increased the projected intensity of the storm. Take a look at the image comparison of this mornings forecast compared to the afternoons. Going to be interesting to watch how this all plays out.

    but of course.

    Will be interesting to see the PM update with the new wave maps for the mid-atlantic.

    i said it would turn sooner than it was forecasted to on the other thread, but i think it's gonna turn harder than expected and stay off the coast. All these weather places want to hype up the chance of a hurricane hitting the U.S, so they can report on it. We haven't been hit by one in 3 years and you can tell they are getting desperate.

    look at this

    they still have it going over florida even though only one model takes it that direction. the rest take it out past the outer banks like earl.

    but as per the swell aspect, i think we will finally see some swell, probably not clean or remotely ridable while the storm is going past, but i think we should see some swell on the back end of the storm.

    I noticed there is some green on the swell graph on thursday so I might take off work and surf some of that green time.

    i hope it stays off shore. i hope it is being hyped up by the weather channel like someone else said. it keeps changing, it keeps turning more east with every advisory. it's too early to see yet. i just hope it don't mess up my block. ernesto in 06 caved in a roof on my block that was 45 years old. i wasn't living here yet though. it brought good swell. that storm was nothing on a scale of things either. i remember gloria being bad up here, and belle when i was 5 years old. ernesto caused a tree to fall onto the roof of a buddy of mines garage. he lived up in orange county new york. it didn't help the roof was falling apart already anyway. i went up to help him with a job during hanna in 08, and he was worried that was gonna do more damage to his place.

    O so do I. I wanna it to farther offshore so we get some big, long period swell and so it doesn't destroy the beaches from the erosion. There's a chance for it to miss us completely.
