Breaks of Midday Sun, Afternoon Showers, Knee High Wind Chop…Surf Friday
A round of showers & thunderstorms exited the coast around daybreak with partial clearing on the way for midday. With onshore winds hanging tough from northern Massachusetts through the Maine Coastline, temps there will hang in the 60′s along the shore, while inland with some sun, 80 degrees is a possibility. Knee high Surf is unremarkable with generally onshore winds and a short six second period. Any midday sun will boil this moist atmosphere stimulating the formation of late afternoon showers & maybe some thunder.
Maine… The cleanest this morning
New Hampshire to Cape Cod... Onshore Winds & not much push
Rhode Island… Quiet & Gray
Long Island… Like other areas, gray & misty with a knee high wind chop
Future Outlook… Saturday’s Wind Swell Arriving Sooner than Later
Models are accelerating the exit of a weather front off the east coast Thursday & Thursday night with winds already backing into the west Friday. Current model runs expect the larger wave heights from this event to roll in Friday afternoon & evening, with a tapering of the swell through Saturday. Southern New England & Downeast Maine are best suited to capture this swell direction. After Saturday, conditions are expected to settle down for a spell.
Wind Swell Friday... 8-9 sec periods, moderate winds swing SW (AM) & then gust from the West midday. Early showers, variable sun midday followed by afternoon showers, 60 deg air
Wind Swell Saturday… 9 sec periods, gusty N/NW winds, 60 deg air, variably cloudy
