    Low pressure Fri-Sat

    So whats up with this low pressure system for this weekend? I heard the Weather Channel say "beach erosion will be a factor for the Carolinas due to pounding surf" this weekend! Any chance the surf will be bigger than whats forcasted now?

    Looks like a big NE, pressure gradient due to a high and low squeezing heavy winds and surf towards the coast. Not sure, def. looks like fairly strong NE though.

    guys, looks overhead for the outer banks... South of obx, wont be as big due to the NE swell angle.

    i dont really like the term windswell, it doesn't tell u much. The swell over the weekend looks to be in the 9-10 second range. Go to the swellplots on the forecast pages to view the details.

    Im hoping the tropics flare up sometime soon. This is about the time that storms seem to blow up one after another. Im praying for surf about as hard as you can!
