WPB/Jupiter - Seas Forecast

People in WPB and Jupiter, what is your go-to website for forecasting the seas offshore near you?

Re: WPB/Jupiter - Seas Forecast

I find windfinder quite accurate and it usually goes out 10 days. Inlet webcam gives you an idea of current conditions but obviously doesnt see far offshore. Havent tried magic seaweed bit i believe it uses the same data as windfinder.

Re: WPB/Jupiter - Seas Forecast

Magic seaweed uses the same data but different perspective. It is more focused on nearshore and beach conditions.

I check magic seaweed for nearshore conditions and use windfinder to confirm and check offshore conditions. I like the inlet cam for the stills, they help a lot with wave period/chop predictions and direction. I check NOAA for the Florida Gulfstream Current location and distance from multiple inlets. This can help with predicting viz and fish. The Fort Pierce buoy is great for offshore seas and the exact timing of Cold Fronts. This is important because there is usually a small good-weather window before and after each Cold Front rolls in. I've gotten some nice fish and lobster during these short intervals.

May be coincidence, but over the summer I saw a unique set of conditions over a few days using the sites above. I predicted good viz and cold clean water in an area that is always dirty and warm. I guessed this would drive in some big fish and told my buddy we were gong to get a cubera. On the way out I said it again, we are getting a cubera. On the first dive I see the fish and screwed up the approach. Told my buddy who didn't see it, he backdives the spot and nails the large cubera.

Another app/website is Sailflow. Using the Jupiter offshore buoy you will get a worst case scenario for seas.
