Florida Surf Report/Forecast and Tropical Outlook for June 14th 2024
Atlantic Surf Report and Forecast
 
Friday:  Small.  Lucky knee high waves with light onshore winds.

Weekend:   Staying small.  Knee high for the weekend.

Looking ahead:  Onshore winds strengthen, creating wind swell conditions for the start of next week. We may see a few periods where the winds will dip into the low teens that may clean things up a little.  Winds should drop off by next weekend giving us some smaller but cleaner leftovers.

Gulf Coast Surf report and Forecast
Friday: 

Gulfsters:  Flat

Panhandle:  Flat with a few ankle busters now and again.

Weekend:

Gulfsters: Small to flat in most spots.

Panhandle: Flat with a few ankle busters now and again for Saturday.  S/SE winds build for Sunday pushing up a thigh high wind swell wave. 
Looking ahead:  

Gulfsters:  Winds turn to the East and pick up as an area of low pressure forms in the Western Gulf.  This will basically push all the energy to the West leaving us with small to flat waves and brisk offshore winds.

Panhandle:  Strong Easterly winds for most of the week making for mostly choppy wind swell waves.  West facing beaches that block the winds could hold a little wave but expect those locations to be on the smaller side.  The Western Most Panhandle could see some waist to chest size for mid week but the winds will be strong and keep conditions chunky.

Tropics and Hurricane Forecast
Not too much currently, but the warm waters and favorable conditions suggest an active season ahead.  

An area of low pressure is anticipated to form near Mexico and move into the Gulf, where it may strengthen into a weak tropical storm before heading back over Mexico/Texas and dissipating as it moves westward over land.  The system is predicted to bring significant rainfall to the Texas coast, accompanied by a moderate possibility of storm surge.  Although this system is not expected to impact us directly, we can expect fairly strong easterly winds due to the interaction between this system and the high-pressure area to the north.  Should this storm develop tropical features, it would be the first of the season and would be named Alberto.
