    Surfline forecast- not good...

    East Coast

    The surf will be slow going at times with high pressure over the NC coast/western Atlantic region dominating the pattern. This will keep the storm track inland towards the Mid West and Great Lakes region. This ridge periodically breaks down at times allowing for low pressure to potentially develop over the western Atlantic and set up some swell for the NE and SE US regions. Chances are that at least one low pressure system will turn out to be a significant swell maker for the East Coast, but unfortunately these look like they will be few and far between.

    The key will be the steering of any potential system as they develop - if they track off too fast in the North Atlantic then swell generation will be inhibited. Overall I would expect an average to below average spring for the Northeast US with the Southeast US potentially seeing an average season due to ESE trade windswell filtering in from the Atlantic ridge.

    dont read into this crap. if we learn one thing from living on the east coast....it's that it's unpredictable.
