Week of 8/25

T.S. Cristobol has formed near the Bahamas and is tracking in a good direction for NJ.  Originally the storm was due to head toward the Carolinas, then turn out to sea, but now the forecast looks even better as he will head due North.  (This track is better for us because we will see swell sooner than if it goes “under” the outer banks).  Look for the first groundswell lines to fill in around lunchtime on Wednesday, quickly building all afternoon going overhead by dark.  Winds Wednesday will be light SW so it won’t be too bumpy in SNJ – but CNJ will be going off!!!  By Thursday morning, the swell will be in full effect, hitting 4-5ft @12 seconds with brisk NNW winds early (choose your beach wisely), easing up all morning into perfect light offshores by lunch.  Really, really fun surf for the whole day Thursday.  Obviously biggest in the morning and dropping all day, but a classic late summer day is on tap!!!  Swell will be gone Friday and Labor Day weekend is looking to be weak so get on it Wednesday afternoon and Thursday!
