I love how all the big swells always come on the weekends it makes it so much easier (knock on wood)
way too long term, it's hard to predict weather beyond a couple days, so many variables involved. right now they are putting Ida swinging inland and being over/off the coast of georgia in 5 days. so maybe what this is coming from is that. though, apparently Ida is going to meet 40 mph of wind shear as it makes landfall and is supposed to drastically weaken, not to mention it will be losing it's fuel supply from the warm waters of the gulf.
educated answer.... I like the application of you atmospheric science knowledge...If anyone wants a pretty good sight to look at weather charts and upcoming systems check this out:
if you look at the gfs model (long range model) it looks like a strong low will be working its way our way (im guessing this is ida based on previous posts)...check out tha site its cool if your a weather geek

So if its Ida thats gonna be causing the waves which will be south of off the coast of georgia you say, why do the wave maps make it look like the swell is coming from the north and the winds are coming from the north?
I don't understand mother nature but glad to see some waves coming

sweet but gonna have to wait though till Sunday morning for it to clean up
Way to early to determine Ida's exact track. Could be close to the coast, or could move off a little depending on what this next front does and how fast it will make it to the east coast. Could be a quick mover towards nova scotia, but wave maps have it moving very slow=mucho fetch for mid atlantic. Start choosing your south facing, sheltered spots wisley!
21ft swell? Really?
21ft swell? Really? That's a bigger prediction than Bill around here. Prolly won't get that big, hope it stays rideable later in the week.
