What a wild ride our region and the rest of the East Coast has been through over the last week! We had record snowfall and conditions from Jonas and even picked up a few flurries reported right here in the 904. In the wake of Jonas, he produced some of the most epic winter waves on record depending on where you were along the coast. We got a good dose of swell this week with some warming weather trends, but for those who could travel north to brave the cold or south to thaw out, you may have scored some really thumping surf. For those that were lucky enough to be posted up somewhere in the Caribbean, they scored too!
Looking ahead into the weekend as we get the leftovers from our fading swell, there is another clipper coming over the Great Lakes as we speak with a few big high-pressure systems sandwiched between the Appalachians and Midwest. It is going to warm up into the weekend, but the winds won’t be in our favor for anything exciting. As this system moves on, we’ll see a little micro-swell through next week for the longboard range but at present that looks to be all until next Wednesday as we could see a building pulse of southerly swell. Until then, enjoy some good weather into the beginning of February, as we’re sure to see Jack Frost sending us some more wintery swells soon!
