The Atlantic Hurricane season has shifted into high gear, and is following seasonal trends of increased activity as we head into September. Hurricane Gustav will be entering the Gulf of Mexico waters this weekend, while Tropical Storm Hanna looks to push E/SE swell energy towards the lower half of the East Coast.
As Hurricane Gustav enters the central Gulf of Mexico, significant swells will spread from the west coast of Florida across to Texas. Certain areas along the South Texas coast and the western Florida coast are likely to see large surf and great conditions. Unfortunately, Gustav is likely to be a very dangerous storm as it makes landfall along the central Gulf of Mexico. Keep an eye on the updated Swellinfo forecasts for your local conditions. Text forecasts are updated each morning and evening.
Take a look at the new Swellinfo Hurricane Wave Maps below, to see E/SE fetch develop towards Florida and through the Mid Atlantic. These swells will move into East Coast locations on Monday, and be largest for Florida and the Southeast.
