The conditions look okay with variable winds out of the East in the 5-8 MPH until 11 and then those will shift onshore but remain very light throughout the rest of the day. The air temp will check in at 57 degrees.
Saturday morning looks very questionable as a front blows through. The wind models are showing early onshore winds right out of the gate and those will jump up to as high as 30MPH by 10AM. As a result of the strong local winds the wind swell will pick up through the day and should get up into the chest to shoulder high zone for the better West facing breaks, (but chances are that it won’t be pretty).

The conditions look questionable with winds out of the West at 10-30 all day long and a 60% chance of rain. The air temp will drop down to 56 degrees.
For Sunday morning we should see the fruits of the wind with chest high wind peaks for the better West facing beaches. This energy will fade quickly through the day. Winds are forecasted to turn offshore late Saturday night so it may be good for the AM.
