Swell starts to filter in to the east coast of Florida north of the Bahamas shadow. Current projections keep most areas of interest at 2 to 4 feet at 15-16 seconds. Swell will slowly build all day long to the higher end of the range. Winds should cooperate and generally stay offshore for the morning and early afternoon. Could swing around onshore later in the day. Chance of a late day/early evening storm along the coast.
The best push of Larry’s swell should be impacting most surf spots of interest on the east coast of Florida by Thursday. A modest push of water from the treasure coast on north should come to fruition at a long 15 to 16 second period. Best swell to the north, tapering down a tad as you move south. A foot or two of swell might filter as far south as Palm Beach County, but the best play would be central to north Florida. Currently, offshore winds look favorable for almost the whole day. There is a slight chance for an afternoon thunderstorm.
Larry’s swell peaks Thursday evening/Friday morning and persists all day. Conditions should be similar for almost all areas as they were Thursday. A few models actually show a little bit of a bump up in swell Friday morning that could even be a touch better than Thursday. It is still a bit early to tell if that will play out. Regardless, day 3 of Larry’s swell should produce for just about everywhere on the east coast of Florida north of the Bahamas shadow. Winds remain favorable/offshore for most areas again. Possible late day storm per usual Florida summer.
