    Question Bertha watch

    I know, I know, I know... we've still gotta wait and watch. BUT! I want to know even with Bertha at a 3, if she makes the expected turn north so far out can we still expect decent swell (possible chest range) around Central Florida for the weekend?

    Also, I check the Various computer models and as of the 8pm update (on Mon 7/7) the most recently run computers have Bertha turning back towards Florida, and the US in general, near the end of the 5 day forecast- whatts happening to shift back towards?

    I know the models update throughout the day so they may have changed by the time you get to this but check out the BAMM and the LBAR computer models.

    yes, look for decent size E ground swell moving into Central Florida friday into saturday. The swellinfo forecast is an undercall at this point.

    I am working on incorporating hurricane model wind data into the swellinfo wave model. This is something I've been meaning to do for a while, and now that Bertha is here, I working hard to get this going.

    the latest model runs dont show a recurvature, but fore forecast models aren't that reliable 3-5 days out, so keep an eye on em.

    Cool Gotta love the weather guy...

    Dr. Steve Lyons on the Weather Channel just called for Central and North Florida to have 5-7 footers at about 15 seconds for Saturday. "Just looking out for my fellow surfers!"
