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.
