More Surf for Rincon, Puerto Rico.
This looks like a decent enough cold-front to me! There are some key differences between this winter storm and last week’s super swell, but the current storm system should have plenty of power, fetch, and positioning to to throw a nice NW swell our way. The motion of this storm isn’t going to have the same dip down and push the entire North Atlantic at us. It’s going to move north and climb latitudes which means that the pulse will probably not last as long as the super swell. I still expect 3-4 days of perfect surf from the current weather system. We could see the first pulse of swell as early as tomorrow evening and it should last into Saturday morning. Depending on what the storm does at sea we might see some NE long-period kickback into the weekend and early next week. It’s not currently forecast to do that, but from what I’m seeing in the forecast track of the winter storm it might be a possibility. Tomorrow will probably start off small in the waist high range and build into head high by evening. Thursday could see some sets into the double overhead range with most of the surf averaging a couple feet overhead at most spots. Friday should be fading but still have chest to head conditions with a little bigger set thrown in at random. Saturday will start off chest high as well and slowly fade out as the day goes on. I’ll keep checking on the progress of this storm and update accordingly. But basically, get ready to surf!
