Swell Direction
Wednesday
8/31
Down some NNE 5+ early Gaston swell from previous fetch fading from 3.4 ft @ 12-13 secs
The remnants of TD #8 are to be tracking northeast off the Outer Banks offering nothing of interest. TD #9 is to be approaching the West Coast of Fla with winds 40 kts putting it in Tropical Storm status. A generalized pattern of low pressure is to develop over Central Fla generating only southwest winds at 20 kts offering no swell producing fetch relative to the Outer Banks initially.
4.0 ft 100 degrees
Thursday
9/1
Down some N 5+ early Gaston swell fading out from 1.8 ft @ 10-11 secs
Low pressure is to be developing while tracking northeast off the Southeast Coast generating only southwest winds at 20-25 kts well out at sea. TD #9 is to be tracking northeast from the Gulf to the Atlantic over North Fla with winds 50 kts but all landlocked. No swell production expected immediately.
2.0 ft 95 degrees
Friday
9/2
Up slightly NE 10+ early Southwest windswell fading from 4 ft @ 7-8 secs at exposed breaks
TD #9 is to be just south of the Carolinas later with winds 50 kts and just far enough away from land to offer some swell generation potential.
2.5-3.0 ft 205 degrees
Saturday
9/3
Up NE 45 early Northeast windswell to 8 ft @ 8 secs
TD #9 is to be racing northeast with winds 50 kts offering south fetch relative to the Outer Banks and the Northeast Coast later. Another tropical low is to be developing just east of the Virgin Islands.
6.0 ft 35 degrees
Sunday
9/4
Down slightly NNW 15+ early Northeast windswell fading from 5 ft @ 10 secs
The models are mixed concerning TD #9 with the official track having it racing northeast and the GFS model suggesting a turn to the north and northwest moving on New York but not quite tracking onshore. The new tropical low is to be moving over the Virgin Islands.
5.0 ft 40 degrees
Extended
Outlook
Up some maybe ---

The GFS model suggests the new tropical low is to start pushing northwest just off the Southern Bahamas on Tues (9/6) at tropical storm force. Something to monitor. And the remnants of TD #9 are to be tracking northeast on Mon AM (9/5) into the Canadian Maritimes.
