As Fiona slowly drifts to the NNW she is still picking up a little steam, but poses no threat to the US and unfortunately is too far off to send us any major swell. In her wake though we have Invest 99L that is being steered on a more southward trek from a Fiona and a few other factors. With a major low pressure system causing rains and flooding across the plains, and a little pop of a cool front drifting down though the Great Lakes could serve as funnel to steer what will be Gaston south. Whether it will be named and survive is still up in the air as many of the models are a bit all over the place right now. We’ll know a lot more in a couple of days when things start to develop.

Until we see further development of the Tropics, we will have a little nor’easter pushing through mid-week! It will be nice to get a couple degrees cooler and some chunky waist to chest high surf! It will be mostly wind driven, but we have the right breaks to hold these waves, and it looks to pick up from late Tuesday all the way through Friday! We have full moon tides right now so time your sessions around the tides and be mindful of hard rips during the outgoing tides!
