This mornings update brought to you by Supreme Stucco and Plastering Inc. Visit them at Supremestucco.comWill have a forecast update later today. MAYBE a little ESE bump coming setting up late in the weekend. Highly dependent on on what has now become 94L INVEST near the Cape Verdes. Although NHC has placed 10% on area of spin East of NFLA it will be a non swell factor as swell generated is headed out to sea.Stay tuned for the forecast update.
