Current conditions

Unsettled Day with Midday Showers. Thigh High (+/-) Waves. Gusty Afternoon Winds.

Weather is trying to clear the coast this morning, but instability behind the front will cast in another round of showers either side of noon. Winds this morning are fairly light allowing fog to accumulate in some spots, especially Maine. Waves are running 2-3 ft at 8 sec from the SE, producing weak knee to sometimes waist high waves in the surf zone. Look for this swell energy to fade through the day, and NW winds to gust 15-25 mph this afternoon.

Waves Today… 8 sec periods, light AM W/SW winds swing NW midday & gust 15-25 mph. Showers midday, some afternoon sun with the wind switch. 55 degrees early then cooling down.

Maine CAMs were fogged in. Rhode Island CAMs offline

New Hampshire to Cape Cod… Generally thigh high with a random larger pulse

Scituate… Flat & hoping for a Northerly wind wave Thursday/Friday

Long Island East & West… Generally thigh high +/-

Future Outlook… Getting Quiet into the Weekend with Gusty NW Winds Thursday-Friday


Last night’s weather front spawns a significant low close to the Nova Scotia coast today. While our fetch from the east will be blocked by the Maritimes, stiff NW winds wrapping around the backside of the storm sends a significant late season swell to the Caribbean. Save for a northerly wind wave inside Cape Cod Bay Thursday/Friday, our surf forecast nearshore looks fairly quiet through the weekend & into the upcoming week.

Waves Thursday... Gusty NW winds 15-25 mph send waves offshore. Mostly sunny & not feeling like the upper 50′s due to the wind.

Waves Friday… 8 sec periods, NW winds 10 mph become light south late, partial sun, low 60′s

Low Pressure Up Against Nova Scotia can’t deliver us an easterly Fetch, but sends a swell south to the tropics for the weekend.
