3-Day Surf Forecast for Rhode Island


SUNDAY, AUGUST 16

2-3 feet / ENE winds

East windswell fills in from departing TS Kyle continues into Sunday, with surf around the knee to waist high mark and little on the mushy side. The swell should still have a good amount of east in it so many spots will be on the small side until the swell shifts more south. East/northeast winds make for bumpy conditions at east facers that see the most size.


As Tropical Storm Kyle pushes out of our swell window, a new area of interest could develop off the Carolinas throughout the day Sunday. This should set up a reinforcing East windswell into Monday.


MONDAY, AUGUST 17

2-3 feet AM/ Lighter ENE winds

Building east windswell continues into Monday morning, setting up better surf across Rhode Island. Still not ideal, but should be around waist to stomach high with a few bigger sets possible. Winds turn a bit more north which should make conditions on the fun side for south facers.


TUESDAY, AUGUST 18

1-2 feet / ENE winds

East windswell drops into Tuesday but still in the knee to thigh high zone and rideable on the longboards. Winds turn west and clean up east facing breaks. Best bet is early before the swell fades out in the afternoon.


FURTHER OUT

Weak east windswell fades into Tuesday, but should keep things rideable in the early morning on the logs.

Tropical Storm Josephine doing it's very best to stay Tropical storm status as slowly creeps past the Caribbean. Models are showing the system curving up towards Bermuda early next weak and losing energy as it approaches Bermuda. Not an ideal situation, but should send small SE swell our way mid week.
