With Nadine basically doing a complete U-Turn back out into the Atlantic. How do you guys think the waves will fare up for sunday since swellinfo and others are calling for a pretty clean decent day? Im From NJ btw

Not too sure about this one... a cat 1 that far out could leave us with very inconsistent, small scale swell. Our biggest hopes should be that she stalls for a good long time when she makes the turn. If she sits and spins for couple days, we might get lucky. Not too sure about head high as it stands right now.
If you look at the forecasted track of Nadine, you might think there is no way that storm is going to send us anything substantial.
Now, look at the Swellinfo East Coast Wave maps, and pay attention to the gray wind barbs. What you will see is a substantial area of Easterly winds north and west of Nadine. What is forecasted to happen, is the interaction of Nadine with a stalled frontal boundary looks to setup decent amount of easterly fetch. Most of the swell will be generated from winds away from the center of the storm.
Local winds will be a huge factor, as always, with how good the waves are, and it will vary along different stretches of coast.
