NE Gale Storm Producing Swells Along Florida Coast

This past weekend brought poor beach and boating conditions up-and-down the Florida East Coast due to rough surf and gusty northeast winds off the Atlantic Ocean.

The large Gale storm that was parked off the Northeast United States for several days last week and going into this past weekend, helped to produce large swells along Florida beaches from Jacksonville to Miami. A tight pressure gradient helped to kick the winds up as well along the coast, making for choppy wave conditions on top of the ground swell, and also contributing to some minor beach erosion from the Treasure Coast to Palm Beach County.

Spring Breakers might have been disappointed because of the cool  and windy conditions at the coast, but surfers sure did take advantage of the large waves over the last several days.
