Tropical Update?!? In March?!? Why yes it is! It hasn’t happened since 1908, but we kicked up last year’s hurricane season a little early, and once a storm is named, it becomes official! Let’s face it, it has been a really warm and dry winter, and we’re already shifting into the high 80s this week, and the water temps will spike quickly in our short-lived spring, which turns into summer in a blink of and eye! After a few mediocre seasons, and a halfway decent season last year where we dodged a major bullet, the East Coast is due for a true La Nina year, and this just may be that year.
Invest 90L is swirling out into the Atlantic as we speak, and the National Weather centers have been monitoring it since Sunday. Though somewhat disorganized at present, it could have the potential to flare up with a major storm pushing off New England at present! We are sitting at home sandwiched between two high pressure systems, two major systems lurking offshore and to the north, and another low pressure system coming across pushing offshore over the next couple of days equals a lot of activity! After last week’s dose of fun waves, we look to stay in the fun-zone in the waist-to-chest-high range through tomorrow, then a slight drop off until the waves spike up again on Friday with some longer range small leftover through the weekend once the offshore winds come. Warm weather, tropical systems brewing offshore in late March, and spring into summer is showing some great wave-producing potential!
