ocean temperatures now average 79 degrees

Waves are looking mostly unrideable this morning. Late-morning's lower tide could help make the small waves more rideable by then. Surfers seeking an early morning surf session may want to focus on Cocoa Beach's northernmost beaches for a longboardable wave.

Cocoa Beach ocean temperatures now average 79 degrees.

SURF REPORT FOR MEMORIAL DAY

Bob Freeman has been surfing Brevard's waves since 1966.

Bob Freeman has been surfing Brevard’s waves since 1966.Waves are not looking very fun this morning. There is plenty of northeasterly groundswell remaining, but onshore winds from passing storms are producing sloppy conditions.

FRIDAY: Surfers this morning will find mostly waist-high bumpy lines from a steady easterly wind. Winds will increase during the day.

SATURDAY: The passing tropical system may become TS Bonnie just before it lands around South Carolina. We will see first signs of a background swell by mid-day. Waves will run in the chest-high range, but don’t expect anything epic. Winds will be mostly out of the northeast and lighter for the day.

Waves will become rideable during mid-morning’s lower tide.

SUNDAY: I believe waves will decrease back into the waist-high range with a chance for cleaner conditions early morning from a brief northwesterly wind.

MONDAY: I expect surf to run in the thigh- to waist-high range with cleaner conditions. I’ll provide an update to this forecast over the weekend.

Cocoa Beach ocean temperatures now average 79 degrees.
