[2018-09-18] Florence - gone.But surf forecast is still there for the Lakes

Judging by Google's Hurricane Florence page the storm is pretty much dissipated after 4 days in Carolinas. Yet, GLERL weather maps suggest there could be stormy waves on the Lakes Thursday evening and through the weekend. The Hype Center is not closing just yet.


Plan your surfing sessions on the Great Lakes with surfradar.info! See summary of surf conditions and wave forecast for the Great Lakes for the USA and Canada. Drill down to the current buoy data and web cams for select spots. Best forecasts for surfers, bodyboarders, kiters, fishermen, yachtsmen and boaters on lake Ontario, lake Erie, lake Michigan, lake Huron and lake Superior. The Great Lakes surf forecast is refreshed every 3 hours from Great Lakes Coastal Forecasting System (GLCFS). Normally, the fun begins with reported waves of 3 ft (0.91 m), but still, please double check with the nearest buoy or surf-cam and read the Disclaimer. Currently we have surfcams at dashboards for Port Stanley ON, Grand Bend ON, Kincardine ON, Fifty Point ON (near Hamilton), Toronto ON, Chicago IL, Holland MI (Grand Haven is nearby). There is also a web cam for Sauble Beach ON Jack & Jill's Surf Shop, but it may not work for you as it is not always on, and it requires Java plugin. There are also weather cams (surf line is not seen): Erie PA, Mentor, OH.
