Hurricane Watch: The Eastern Pacific remains relatively quiet and devoid of any organized storms at this current time. No development is expected over the next 48-60 hours.
However in the longer range, there is potential for development this weekend or early next week. A tropical wave moving westward across Central America will develop into an area of low pressure later this week south of the Gulf of Tehuntepec. As this low develops and then moves westward away from land into the open waters of the Eastern Pacific, it will move through a zone of warm water and low wind shear. This could allow the disturbance to become the first named tropical system of the season thus far in the East Pacific Basin, either later this weekend or early next week.

Shark Update: Nothing new to report today.

For Thursday morning looks like the money day for the week. We’ll see another solid day of waves as the South swell peaks. The best South facing beaches will be dishing up shoulder to head high + sets throughout the day.

Waist high NW wind swell will also be in the mix but definitely standing in the shadows of the SW swell.

The top South facing beaches should see inconsistent chest to shoulder high sets. There will likely be some long gaps between waves so bring a good book to read while you’re bobbing out there!
