62164 and 62166 only appear to show wind and pressure, no height or period data.
next question - anyone know how long would it take an average east coast swell to travel from 62164 and 62026 (if i ever find the data) to the scabs area ??

*edit* found it. http://www.surfline.com/surfology/surfo ... ecast2.cfm waves move at 3 timesthe period, but the swell only moves at 1.5 times the period, so an 8 sec swell should move at 12 knots.
