Swell Direction
Up barely  NW 20 early Low odds of north windswell 4.0 ft @ 8 secs
Low pressure is to be in control up north centered near Nova Scotia driving a northwest flow at 20-25 kts over northern waters. Low odds of sideband north windswell resulting.  Otherwise low pressure in the Gulf of Mexico is to be easing northeast possibly reaching the Bahamas and setting up easterly winds at 20 kts late targeting Florida only.  
2.5-3.0 ft 00 degrees
Down some NNW 10+ early North windswell fading from 2.3 ft @ 7-8 secs
The low is to hold over Nova Scotia generating 20-25 kt west winds over outer waters there. Low pressure over the Bahamas is to be tracking northeast with high pressure over the interior US, setting up a gradient and generating north winds at 15 kts barely targeting the Outer Banks. Perhaps some north windchop to result. 
1.5 ft  20 degrees
Down  NW 15+ early No swell of interest forecast
The Bahama low is to race northeast and get absorbed by the larger cold core low still circulating near Nova Scotia.  Winds in that low to build to 25 kts all flowing offshore (northwesterly) resulting in no swell generation potential.  
1 ft or less ---
Down N 5+ early No swell of interest forecast
The low over Nova Scotia is to finally start exiting to the northeast. Weak high pressure to build over the Outer Banks. No fetch to result. 
1 ft or less ---
Down  SE 5 early No swell of interest forecast
High pressure is to track northeast off the Outer Banks setting up east winds 15 kts off Florida but a relatively calm wind pattern expected relative to the Outer Banks.   
1 ft or less ---
Up some --- The models suggest high pressure is to hold off the mid-Atlantic setting up more east winds at 15 kts over a decent sized fetch area south of the high possible producing southeasterly windswell long term.
