7:10 am: COLD N air this morning with the wind switching the direction of the swell. A new NE windswell with the wave size 1 to occasionally 2 feet. The marine forecast is calling for stronger N winds today. The East Canaveral Buoy has a groundswell reading of 2.6 feet at 13 seconds. The Grays Reef buoy to the north has northly windwaves of 4.3 feet at 5.5 seconds. You may can see early morning photos and video on the SS You Tube Cam page.
8:15 am: Super chilly and drifty. You can see the north in the swell in the new photos in box #1. The water temperature is dropping…
10:10 am: Drifty north swell waves, about the same size as earlier. A little choppier as the wind picks up sideshore.
3:20 pm: Small scale northerly windswell as we head into late afternoon. Not any increase since earlier. Choppy and mushy looking as the tide drops. Not much size, the wind is on it, and it’s still quite chilly at the beach…
5:25 pm: Friday evening photos are in box #2 and you can see a slight improvement as it gets close to dark. Some peaks over thigh high with some of the lefts pushing down a beach a little bit. Mushy but doesn’t look not terrible. It’d be nicer if the air tempt was a little warmer.
And we are hearing rumors of an increase in air temperatures. We are doing the waiting game… over and out…
