At this point I would say anything north of the outer banks is probably not going to get much. Mostly because the swell will be from the south or sse and the point at Hatteras creates one hell of a south swell shadow for everything north of there.
However, we could see some solid wrap around swell north of the point and if the winds cooperate, which it looks like they could depending on how far north the storm comes, conditions could be favorable.
i guarantee it'll be onshore and wonky. another instance of micah starting the hype train way tooo early. how'd that emily swell work out for you?
Worked out pretty well, actually. 2 days of chest high, glassy, warm green waves (in southern OBX).
Micah isn't hyping anything, surfline's premium outlook basically mirrors swellinfo right now. All of you that think he is doing it just for unique page visits are tripping balls, you would have checked the forecast regardless of what it said, right? So, therefore, your logic sucks. Quit crying because your northern a55 beach isn't getting any south swell action.
This storm has some potential to be a great swell producer or a great disaster for the SE coast. I can't imagine a Cat 3 or greater hitting Charleston, or anywhere for that matter. Ya'll need to just hope for the best and let the forecast models (which vary from florida to hatteras) do their thing and wait it out a few days.
