Tropical Depression 1

Well it’s that time of year again and it’s not even June 1st. We have tropical depression number one on hanging just off the mid-Atlantic Coast. Winds are at 35 mph with gusts up to 45. It is generating some windswell, possibly mixed with some groundswell for the surfers up there. The depression is forecast to move out and into the open Atlantic in about 36 hours. Since it is sitting over the Gulf Stream and wind shear is light, it may reach tropical storm status for a moment. Then it should dissipate into nothing. Historically depressions that have formed in that area, have moved out, only to recurve toward the coast again. I think the water is too cold for that to happen. Enjoy the surf!
