All Eyes on Hurricane “Jose Curve-O”
It’ been a very interesting and active hurricane season thus far (to say the least). Now that record breaking Hurricane Irma has finally moved into retirement, there’s still one very impressive storm that’s lurking in the Atlantic. Hurricane Jose is located South of Bermuda and is packing 70mph winds while moving WNW at 7mph. Lucky for us, the spaghetti models and forecast tracks from various sources are almost all but certain that this storm will continue a “curving trend” keeping it out to sea. The storm, which was dubbed “Jose Curve-O” by ABC-15 meteorologist Ed Piotrowski in Myrtle Beach will be throwing a very nice ground swell towards the mid-Atlantic region. According to our custom 5-day forecast model, we will see ESE/E ground swell increasing Saturday morning into the weekend. Surf is expected to be WELL overhead especially areas South of Oregon Inlet. As of today, the forecast models show Sunday into Monday expecting NE winds increasing from 11pmh to over 30+, creating choppy conditions. As the storm passes (and depending on how close it gets to the Outer Banks), we should see clean conditions early to mid next week with hopefully several days of great surf. Keep your eyes on our 5-day forecast for the latest developments and cross your fingers that these Hurricane forecast models hold true.
