Florida Surf Report/Forecast and Tropical Outlook for May 31st 2024
Atlantic Surf Report and Forecast
 
Friday:  knee high to start the day.  Onshore winds pick up as the day goes on pushing up a little wind swell by last light.

Weekend:   Thigh to lucky waist chunky wind swell with strong onshore winds.  Looks like it may be ridable in the better spots but you will have to work for it a bit.

Looking ahead:  Surf will settle into the knee to lucky thigh range at 6-7 secs for most of the work week.  We will see mostly onshore winds keeping the quality on lower side.

Weekend:  Knee high wind swell with a few lucky bigger sets.  Winds are onshore and pretty strong so don’t expect much for wave quality.
Looking ahead:  Staying small for the work week.   We may see a little something next weekend.

Tropics and Hurricane Forecast
Not too much currently, but the warm waters and favorable conditions suggest an active season ahead.  I anticipate the emergence of named storms possibly around mid June.

I'll be out of town next week and I probably will not be able to update the articles so check out the cams and the wave models for the latest

Have a great one!  - Bryan
