Florida – Northeast Swell Thursday

Two Northeast swells are forecast for Buoy 41009 (20 NM East of Cape Canaveral), the first building late Wednesday through Thursday, and peaking at 5.2 feet at 11.1 seconds (48°) Thursday afternoon. That swell then dips slightly on Friday, before another Northeast pulse reinforces it later that afternoon.

The reinforcement builds late Friday, bumping swell heights back above 5-feet overnight (5.6 feet at 10.2 seconds), then fades through the weekend. Swell direction is forecast to remain between 48°-54° throughout its duration.

Northeast winds are forecast to increase slightly on Thursday to 10-knots, but swing to the Southwest by Friday morning, providing offshore conditions for the lingering Northeast swell.
