Surf Report/Forecast


July 25-26, 2016

Synopsis: There will continue to be rainbands and pockets of deep convection associated with Darby, and any of these could result in strong gusty winds, intense rainfall, low visibilities, and frequent cloud-to-surface lightning. Although the wind field will continue to gradually diminish, seas will continue to be elevated for awhile longer. Considering all of this, a Tropical Storm Warning remains in effect for some of the coastal waters for the time being.   Surf along east facing shores will remain elevated but should continue to decline as Darby pushes away from the state. The shorter fetch downwind from the islands will result in a bit of a bump on some south facing shores.

Surf Outlook through Sunday, July 31: swells from tropical storm Darby will gradually lower today through tonight, as it moves off to the northwest and weakens. However, trade winds will continue to produce short period choppy surf along east facing shores throughout the forecast period. There will also be a series of small southerly swells through most of week with surf heights remaining below advisory levels.

  Wave face sizes are approximately twice the surf forecast numbers indicated in the tables above.
