An impressive extra-tropical low is sporting some hurricane-force winds off the coast of New Foundland.
But unlike the low pressure system that buzzed up the coast in February, this one isn’t expected to bring much in the way of waves to South Florida.
Arlena Moses, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Miami, said the storm’s impact will be minimal.
“Seas will remain 1 to 3 feet through most of the upcoming week,” she said this morning.
Forecasters in the Melbourne office of the NWS were similarly pessimistic about waves for central Florida from this system.
Still, a high pressure system with light west winds at 7 mph is making it nice and glassy for a morning paddle or swim in Palm Beach County. Rip current chances are expected to be low all week.
