SURF OUTLOOK

3-Day Surf Forecast for Rhode Island


TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 29

2-4 feet / Southerly winds

Remnant "Beta" low pressure shifts north, interacting with an offshore high and setting up a fun little SSE windswell for RI. Expect surf in the waist to stomach high range, with a few chest high sets possible late in the day. Winds out of the south/southwest around 8 knots.


WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 30

3-5 feet / South winds

A broad frontal system shifts towards the coast into Wednesday, setting up gale force winds along the coast. Expect fun waist to chest high surf for most of the day, a bit bigger at top southern exposures. Local winds likely an issue for many spots - blowing south around 15-20 knots with stronger gusts. Spots that are sheltered from that wind will be the call, but will a bit smaller.


THURSDAY, OCTOBER 1

4-5 feet / West winds

Fun surf continues into Thursday as winds improve overnight. Waves right around chest high with sets coming in around head high or so. Winds shift out of the west overnight and east facing breaks should be plenty fun. Overall a great day to surf, so get on it!


FURTHER OUT

Southerly windswell drops into Friday, but should still be plenty fun on the longboards. Small traces through the weekend.

The tropics are still quiet, with nothing more than a small area of interest in the Gulf. We're not out of the woods yet, October is known for producing some major hurricanes. Models are hinting at some action towards the middle of next week, so stay tuned
