Light Offshore Wind At Canaveral At Sunrise

Image: Hurricane Earl East of Central Florida with Fiona on its wings
Hurricane Earl is now located just north of due east of Daytona Beach this morning prior to sunrise. Very light northerly gradient winds which appear to be more of a straight out  drainage flow down the spine of the state are translating to a slight offshore component (from the NW) along the immediate coast. Just checked the surf in Canaveral where the wind is barely detectable. No beach erosion at my locale, but the waves are monstrous with long lines. The NWS and latest wave model indicates the swell will peak during the next 6 hours and will remain elevated today.
The outer most cloud bands of the system are visible along the eastern horizon, as are some spotty showers over the offshore waters.
A  full post will be made later this morning as there are numerous items of meteorological interest to discuss for the days ahead, including those related to Tropical Storm Gaston.
