Day Trend Wind
(Swell Number, Swell Size & Period, Arrival Time and Profile)
(Set wave max face height)
Swell Direction
Up slightly WSW 10 early No swell of interest is forecast
The Bermuda High is to be weak and westward displaced producing only light southwest winds (10 kts) over the Outer Banks offering no odds for windswell production.
1.5 ft 105 degrees
Up some SW 15+ early Low odds of southwest windswell at exposed breaks at 4.0 ft @ 6 secs late
Southwest winds associated with the Bermuda High are to be building along the Carolinas at 15-20 kts enhanced by low pressure building over Maine possibly providing low odds for southwest windswell at exposed breaks.
2.0 ft 220 degrees
Up some SW 15 early Southwest windswell at exposed breaks building to 4.5 ft @ @ 6 secs later
The Bermuda High is to retract to the east some and weak while modest low pressure sets up over the Outer Banks producing a small area of 20 kt southwest winds perhaps offering some odds for windswell production at exposed breaks.
2.5 ft 215 degrees
Down some SW 10+ early Southwest windswell fading from 3.4 ft @ 6 secs
Southwest fetch is to fade and with it the windswell.
1.5 ft 215 degrees
Up some SW 5 early Southwest windswell building to 4.0 ft @ 6 secs late
A new low pressure system is theoretically to build over the Great Lakes possibly firing up the southwest wind gradient again with southwest winds 15 kts later possibly starting to generate windswell at exposed breaks.
2.0 ft 215 degrees
Holding --- The models indicate the southwest winds gradient is to hold into Thurs AM (8/23) then fading out with windswell fading with it. Continued decent odds of sideband windswell production over the Outer Banks until the gradient fades.
