Swell Direction
Up some NW 1-5 early Southeast windswell from previous fetch 2.5 ft @ 9 secs
High pressure is to remain in place but retrograding west centered west of Bermuda and all fetch cutoff relative to the Outer Banks. More high pressure is to be building over the Northeast Coast.

Low pressure is to be pushing off the Northeast Coast generating west winds at 25+ kts offering no swell production potential.
1 ft or less ---
Up some SW 15+ early South windswell building to 5.0 ft @ 6-7 secs later
A new low pressure system is to be building over Quebec setting up south to southwest winds at 20 kts pushing 25 kts later offering windswell generation potential.
2.5-3.0 ft 200 degrees
Down some NW 10+ early South windswell fading from 2.6 ft @ 6 secs
A modest offshore flow and low pressure off the Northeast Coast offering nothing of interest.
1.0 ft 190 degrees
Up slightly N 15+ early Low odds of northeast windswell building to 2.6 ft @ 6-7 secs later
A new high pressure system is to start building over the mid-Atlantic generating northeast winds at 20 kts early possibly generating some windswell.
1.5 ft 40 degrees
Down some --- The models suggest the above high is to fall southeast and fade into Wed (2/28) with northeast winds fading to 15 kts off the coast and windswell fading. Broad low pressure is to be well off the Northeast Coast at that time generating west winds at 40 kts and another low is to be pushing off the coast behind it on Thurs (3/1) generating more west winds and suppressing swell production.
