Tropical update … in late May?! Why, yes! Almost seems like déjà vu from almost exactly this time last year when we had an early named storm jumpstart what ended up being another ho-hum hurricane season in 2015. With a record El Niño year fading away, we have high hopes for finally having a breakout season, without breaking out the hurricane kit or evacuation routes!
We are currently monitoring a highly favorable low-pressure system that will be developing on a track to be moving offshore into a window where it could become a named system for a cup of coffee or two before spiraling away as most early season systems do. It’s still early in the week to tell, but we will be monitoring this system closely with periodic updates as we close in on our big holiday weekend! We will see slowly developing nor’easter windswell/groundswell conditions that should build slightly into the weekend. Things will change, as they always do, and at most we’re looking at some rippy conditions and some potential wind and rain washing out the BBQs, but that won’t keep the surfers from charging if it’s good!
