I think that's where the discrepancy comes from.
I think you nailed it...
The 00z NOAA wavewatch III run showed a big pulse of E swell for sunday. like 6 feet at 8 seconds off north jersey/island. I usually dont check the 0z run because it comes out at midnight. By 6 a.m. the 06z run is out and that one is showing small for sunday. Crazy.
