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.

    Correct.... Allthough, its the GFS run we are dependent on, which provides the wind data input for Wavewatch and Swellinfo model runs.

    I'm just not seeing it on this one. I can't even place the system in our swell window at this point.

    God, I hope I'm wrong...
