Rincon, Puerto Rico Surf Forecast – June 20, 2019
More Summer Weather – No Major Surf in Rincon
Granted, the earth is not completely quiet in regards to the current weather over the North Atlantic. However, there doesn’t seem to be enough going on to make any major surf for Rincon, Puerto Rico. This is common for June. The bright side is that there is at least more small scale surf lesson days on the horizon on the low tides and that some parts of the island that are super exposed will continue to see small surf. We’re not completely flat as a lake everywhere on the island – not just yet anyways.
Tropical Analysis for Surf
Currently, the only low wind shear areas don’t have hot enough water to see any significant formation in the near term forecast in the North Atlantic. We continue to see several open waves traverse the Atlantic and the Caribbean. In addition the ITCZ is lit up (common this time of year). However, sea surface temps still aren’t unusually high and where they are the highest wind shear is far to strong to allow for developement.
My take-home from a quick look at the current weather is that we won’t see any Tropical Cyclone formation for another week or so. However, any change in the wind shear situation would merit special attention. Because we have so many open waves this year, it is very likely that one will be able to grow into something more significant if the wind shear backs down in any hot zone of the ocean. The heat is very intense, humid, and overbearing right now here in Rincon. As summer progesses, I can see plenty of Fuel in the form of heat content to feed some of these potential tropical systems.
