HURRICANE WATCH October 22nd, 2014 – The Eastern Pacific Basin remains quiet, and no tropical development is expected over the weekend. We are monitoring an area of showers and thunderstorms off the coast of southeastern Mexico for possible development early next week.
For Saturday morning that NW energy will be on it’s way to the hospice but twitch out a few more inconsistent sets in the waist to chest high range for top West facing breaks.
Another pulse of NW swell, from an angle of 300-310 degrees should start to fill in later in the day. The most exposed West facing breaks, that are receptive to swell from that angle, should see chest to shoulder high sets.

The conditions look okay as high pressure starts to break down and we have a light onshore flow with 2-6 MPH breezes out of the West until noon and onshore winds in the 10-14 MPH zone in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 70 degrees.
For Sunday morning we’ll see NW energy with 12-14 second intervals move in from a 290-295 degree angle. This should make it’s presence known in the AM with chest to head high sets and a few larger waves at the stand out, deep water, West facing breaks.

The conditions look good as high pressure promotes a clean ocean surface. We’ll see breezes, out of the E/NE, in the 1-7 MPH zone until noon, (stronger below the passes and canyons), and then those only get up to 10-12 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp remains in the low 70′s.
For Tuesday morning the NW swell will be on the drop but there still should be some chest to shoulder high sets rolling in at the best West facing breaks.
