*Tropical Update & SWELL ALERT*This is Rory Gregg with your Northeast Florida Surf Forecast*Updated 9/16/14*
Well, we officially have our first Hurricane of the season, Edouard, but he’s taking his category 3 ticket to ride off into the middle of the Atlantic. With that said, he will send some very long range fetch that will couple in with a double barrel low pressure system to our north and wrapping into the Gulf. So, these elements will come together and give us a one hit wonder swell through tomorrow and Thursday with favorable winds projected for some fun surf! it will fade a bit towards the weekend, but we may have another little pulse coming by weeks end. Speaking of pulses, there are more storms marching off of Africa so we’ll keep our eyes on them for the Friday update to see what will be happening, or not, in the near future.
