    Tropical Wave - Invest 95L

    Looks like some potential for this tropical wave to bring the east coast some surf for next week. Below are the forecast models predictions for this system. The GFDL has this at Cat 2 status on Saturday, so this system has some potential. It just needs to fight off the sheer over the next couple of days.

    Swellinfo surf forecasts go out 5 days, but wave/period maps will go out 7.5 days. On the ground swells, a good way to track when the swell energy arrives is to look at the wave period maps.

    For this system, looks for the surf to pick up sunday/monday time frame. It will depend on how much development occurs.

    Let's cross our fingers, but not get our hopes up. Other than the last few days, the summer has been flat as the pamlico sound.
