Week of 10/13

Late season tropical storms?  YEP!! Tropical Storm Fay is weakening and too far east don’t expect much from her.  There is little groundswell out there, but southerly winds will give it texture.  Look for that southerly flow to hang around for through Thursday with seas in the 2-4ft range.  The good news is Tropical Storm Gustavo has rapidly formed northeast of the Caribbean and his track looks excellent for the mid-Atlantic (although not so good for the Virgin Islands).  Gustavo will begin to track north and we will see the first little groundswell lines Thursday afternoon-ish, which by then he may actually be a Cat2 hurricane.  The groundswell will be slowly filling in all day Friday and it should be really fun by the afternoon, with light west winds predicted.  Saturday looks unreal with offshore winds and overhead tropical swell.  Current models show 4-5ft at 13 seconds which equates to overhead surf for the garden state!  Leftovers Sunday will be fun as well.  More updates if the models change…
