What a great week of fun waves and good weather! We hate to sound like a broken record again, but our next dose of weather ahead will be very similar next week … just not sure how much of a double dose of nor’easter conditions it will bring. As our last front moved off, we’re holding some long fetch in the water, size will be dropping over the next couple of days, but long periods of lines should be coming in, and it will be fun on the smaller wave crafts! If you’re looking for a little warmer weather and sizable surf, down past the Cape in the next 24 hours could be good in the right places. We’ll be keeping a close eye on this late-season polar vortex, which will bring mild temps to us in the south, but those poor folks up north are going to get dumped on again!
So, what’s up with this polar vortex? No surprise this El Nino season to hear of a system like this coming through in April right? In simple terms, a polar vortex is a persistent, large-scale cyclone, circling the planet’s geographical poles. The bases of the two polar vortices are located in the middle and upper troposphere and extend into the stratosphere. They surround the polar highs and lie in the wake of the polar front. In a nutshell, a massive cold storm that decides to creep south out of its realm and cause mayhem for a few days until drifting back northward. Thank god we live in the south. If you’re looking for a place to warm up this weekend, it’s going to be a hot party for the ever-famous release of Void Magazine’s 6th Annual SWIMSUIT ISSUE!
