After a good start to the week with some fun leftover swell, we’ve creeped back into grovel zone. We have some small little summer waves still hanging around, and as we come out of this waning moon phase, the tides will mellow out a little to find a small roller at your favorite sandbar during the right tide. Looking ahead to next week as we approach the 4th of July Weekend, which is always a great time of year in the 904, the summer solstice has officially commenced and we start counting down the days until we finally reach the Cape Verde season where tropical cyclones start forming more predominately in the Atlantic Ocean.
There has been a massive front trudging through the midwest causing more severe flooding and tornados (no effect on us in the south) and as this front makes its way off into the ocean it unfortunately won’t become a big swell producer. We will see a little spike in wave height and a little cool down in temps come Sunday but the rest of the week is going to be from waves for surf camps. If you’re looking to get wet this coming week, it’s time to bust out the LB or the SUP, but you may find a little fish bump here and there.
Tropical Update: Early in the week, Danielle formed quickly in the Gulf with no real threat to the U.S. and faded away into Mexico. We have Invest 95L, a tropical disturbance with a maximum wind speed of 29 mph. It is currently moving to the west at 16 mph. Again, no luck for us here either as it is teetering its way towards Mexico and fading quickly. We are kinda in a holding pattern in the Atlantic at present, and will be keeping our eyes peeled daily to the satellites for any signs of activity!
