Current Observation

Messy conditions this morning, but just starting to clean up now for some spots. Surf right around waist to chest high with a few slightly bigger peaks at standouts. Winds blowing southwest around 15 knots, turning a bit more west over the course of the day.

Expecting east facing breaks to clean up and get FUN this afternoon. Worth checking out

Water Temperature is 65 degrees = 3/2 Wetsuit

3-Day Surf Forecast for Rhode Island


THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1

3-4 feet / Southwest winds

Fun surf continues into Thursday with waves right around waist to chest high with a few bigger peaks early. Winds continue out of the southwest around 10 knots. Should be some fun surf if you look in the right places!


FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2

2-3 feet AM / Variable winds

Easing windswell mix in the water but still fun on the right equipment. Expecting waves around the waist high mark early before dropping further into the afternoon. Worth getting wet because it's going to be a flat weekend. Light variable winds


SATURDAY, OCTOBER 3

1-2 feet / NW shifting west winds

Trace windswell in the water, waves topping knee high at best. Could be enough for the beginners, but overall expect a weak day for surfing.


FURTHER OUT

Best bet is the longest board you've got for the weekend, and keep expectations low.

Similar story continues into early next week. Potential for an uptick in SE windswell, but nothing bigger than thigh high or so.

Looking like the next frontal system should push in sometime around mid week, but looking like a good amount of west in the system which is no bueno for surf in RI.

Talking tropics, we're not expecting to see much action over the next few days besides the area in the Gulf. We're seeing a good amount of Saharan dust shifting across the Atlantic towards the Caribbean over the next few days, which isn't helping for storm development.
