Thursday WFL 6am updater:
1002 over Texas.
The low is already formed over Texas and stronger than forecast. It drops towards the gulf then lifts out to Tennessee. Perfect track so where are the offshores? Seems like just too much gradient. The low will become a powerful vortex approaching the NE with a 1026 high dropping behind it from the Rockies. So west winds stick around. Sunday looks like a solid day. This swell will be strong enough to break boards and thrash you with one model showing 12 second periods. The waves you surf will be generated as ripples right along the Texas shore line, great fetch on this one. Sunday DP wind call NNW 10-15knts. You need to find a sand bar that can handle a swell this solid. Forecast below looks to stick. Monday will have swell also knee to waist high and the wind for sure goes N for Monday. GC may go on a short break after this 4 day swell so surf it up.
Wednesday WFL 6am Report, Surf WX Discussion and Forecast: 1ft waves this am… A solid low pressure will move from Texas to Tennessee and out to the NE US. The gradient looks really strong as the low fires into the gulf with waves coming all the way from the Texas coast across the gulf to WFL with 10-11 second periods for late Saturday and into Sunday. Friday building waves, chest to head high by late, WSW winds at 25 plus. Saturday Head high W waves with 15-20knt W winds. Sunday Continued head high chunky swell with winds dropping to 10-15knts. Monday is cleaner with knee to waist high swell and Light N winds.
