Tuesday features high pressure with tiny S/SE swells fading. The resident high pressure to our north remains a constant feature thru Thursday with waves of low pressure exiting the Hatteras region and approaching Bermuda for the next few days. A fractional east fetch will develop well east of the region and along with some action from the deep eastern atlantic we can expect to see some action registering on the shoreline albeit small. On Friday low pressure cranks up off the SE states and heads NE and passes well SE of the benchmark on Saturday with a cold front coming from our west. The front wiggles thru on Sunday. Expect to see rising SE swells on Friday with medium E/SE swells on Saturday with some large sets possible. Fading conditions on Sunday. Monday and Tuesday next week have a westerly wind pattern and no storminess so the idea of background energy from the prior days will remain the outlook.
