Those winds will still be blowing today on our inner waters, starting
at 10 to 15 knots from the northwest and then increasing to 15 to 25
knots by the afternoon. The waves will be 2 to 4 feet on a west swell of
4 to 7 feet. Stays the same well into the night.
The outer waters will see even stronger winds, sometimes blowing at 30
knots. The waves will be heavy, at 3- to 5-feet on a big northwest swell
of 10 to 12 feet. Night sees no change.
This over-hyped swell from the northwest is backing down a bit today.
Much of Newport will see chest or so high waves. But the shape isn't
living up to expectations. It should be a bit cleaner today, though.
