Swell Direction
Down W 10+ early No swell of interest forecast
Weak low pressure is to be tracking over New England producing a weak offshore flow offering no swell production potential. But the Bermuda High is to be holding while ridging into the mid-Atlantic with low pressure starting to develop just east of the Bahamas producing east winds at 15 kts but not producing any windswell relative to the Outer Banks yet.
1 ft or less ---
Down WSW 10 early No swell of interest forecast
The Bermuda High is to regenerate some with low pressure drifting east approaching the Southeast Coast producing a fetch of 20 kt southeast winds targeting the Outer Banks well later in the day.
1 ft or less ---
Up slightly NE 1-5 early Southeast windswell building to 3.1 ft @ 7 secs late
The fetch associated with low pressure now off St Augustine to still be generating southeast winds now to 20-25 kts generating more windswell
1.5-2.0 ft 130 degrees
Up some ESE 15 early Southeast windswell 5.5 ft @ 8 secs early
The low is to start moving inland over Georgia with 20 kt southeast fetch starting to impact the Outer Banks.
4.0 ft 135 degrees
Down some ESE 15+ early Southeast windswell fading from 5.0 ft @ 7-8 secs
Fetch associated with the low is to be fading while pushing into the Outer Banks. Windswell from it fading.
3.5 ft 130 degrees
Up some ---

The models suggest high pressure is to start building over the Northeast generating east fetch at 15+ kts targeting the Outer Banks up into the Northeast resulting in windswell. And another low pressure system is to develop north of Puerto Rico on Tues (5/31) perhaps starting to generate east winds at 20 kts in conjunction with high pressure off the Northeast Coast. Something to monitor.
