Apparently, affected by the remnants of hurricane ileana, there is a long SW swell that's 3-5' accompanied by the typical 4-5' W swell. Typically the SW swell is 1-2'. Would a mixed swell of this size be a lumpy one? I'm looking to get out there at some point over the weekend but I'm not looking to get sloshed around too badly all day. Potato Patch?



SAT W WINDS 10 KT. WIND WAVES 2 FT OR LESS. NW SWELL 3 TO 5 FT AT 7 SECONDS AND SW 3 TO 5 FT AT 18 SECONDS. PATCHY FOG IN THE MORNING. PATCHY DRIZZLE IN THE MORNING.
SAT NIGHT NW WINDS 10 KT. WIND WAVES 2 FT OR LESS. NW SWELL 3 TO 5 FT AND SW 3 TO 5 FT. PATCHY FOG AFTER MIDNIGHT.
SUN SW WINDS 5 KT...BECOMING NW 5 TO 15 KT. WIND WAVES 2 FT OR LESS...BECOMING 3 TO 4 FT. MIXED SWELL NW 3 TO 5 FT AND SW 3 TO 4 FT. PATCHY NIGHT AND MORNING FOG.
LABOR DAY W WINDS 10 KT. WIND WAVES 2 FT OR LESS. MIXED SWELL NW 3 TO 5 FT AND SW 3 FT. PATCHY FOG.
