(Swell Number, Swell Size & Period, Arrival Time and Profile)
(Set wave max face height)
Swell Direction
Down some N 25+ early Northeast windswell 7.0 ft @ 8-9 secs early
High pressure is to start building inland behind a front holding over the coast producing northeast winds at 25-30 kts early along the Outer Banks.
5.5 ft  35 degrees
Down some E 5+ early Northeast windswell from previous fetch fading from 3.3 ft @ 7-8 secs
The high is to be fading over the Northeast Coast producing a limited fetch of easterly winds at 20+ kts targeting the Southeast Coast but nothing at the Outer Banks.
2.0 ft  50 degrees
Up some ESE 15 early Southeasterly windswell building to 5.0 ft @ 6 secs later
The front and associated easterly fetch is to fading from 15 kts well off the coast still producing windswell. Of more interest is to be a new low pressure system developing tucked along the Southeast Coast producing 25 kt east winds targeting the Outer Banks later.
2.5 ft 100 degrees
Up NE 40+ early Northeast windswell building to 14.0 ft @ 10-11 secs
The low is to be building to gale status along the S. Carolina coast with northeast winds at 45-50 kts in pockets and a broad area of 35 kt northeast winds targeting the Outer Banks.
11.0 ft  55 degrees
Holding early NE 30+ early Northeast windswell fading from 13 ft @ 12 secs early
The gale is to stall a bit further to the east producing 30+ kt northeast fetch targeting the Outer Banks well.
12.0 ft  65 degrees
Down slow --- Beyond the models suggests the low is to start tracking off to the northeast while weakening on Mon (11/18) but still producing some windswell. And of interest is a low pressure system circulating 400 nmiles northeast of the Virgin Islands producing 30 kt east winds possibly generating swell tracking towards the Southeast Coast.
