Nags Head surf report from Obxsurfinfo.com. The report for Sunday and Monday will change based on Irma's track.
We’ve had a couple of beautiful days here on the Outer Banks. There was some rain yesterday but that just seemed to clear the way for a marvelous day today with low humidity, a light breeze and moderate temperatures.
The roads are surprisingly busy for the week after Labor Day and it looks as though our guests have decided to stay around for an extra week or two before heading home. That’s fine with us, of course.
Hurricane Irma will miss the Outer Banks all together. All of the models suggest the same thing. If there is a some real relief with that, there is also a very real sense of compassion and concern for the many people who are still in the path of the monster storm.
The latest guidance takes the storm through the middle of Florida and South Carolina with impacts to the western part of North Carolina. The storm is so large that on Monday and Tuesday—Tuesday especially— we’ll feel some of the effects, but it should just be intermittent showers and wind.
It does looks as though surfing conditions will be very good for the next few days. The shift in Irma’s path changes the surf forecast, but we’ll probably see 6-7’ waves north of Oregon Inlet over the weekend and maybe a bit more on Monday. On the South facing beaches of Frisco, OBXsurfinfo.com is predicting 10’ and maybe higher.
Not a time for the novice at all, but if the forecast holds true, we should have epic conditions for surfers into next week.
A heads up for a great event in early November. Our Greatest Ever and most certainly last Womanless Beauty Pageant will be November 4 at Kelly’s Outer Banks Tavern.
