SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED on 7-23-2019
______________________________________________________________________________________________________

HURRICANE WATCH: Tropical Storm Dalila

As of Tuesday morning Tropical Storm Dalila is located about 580 miles to the southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Highest sustained wind is near 40 mph with movement to the north-northwest at 8 mph.

Despite becoming a tropical storm, the system is still rather disorganized based on recent satellite imagery. There can be a slight increase in surf along the west coast of Baja California but that will be minor.

Dalila will drift to the northwest through the middle of the week while encountering less favorable conditions and gradually dissipating.

There are no other concerns for development across the eastern or central Pacific through the next several days.

For Wednesday morning we’ll see that South swell peak, and although nothing spectacular it will put the most exposed South facing beaches in the waist to chest high + zone on the sets. The angle will remain a steep 180-185 degrees with 15-16 second intervals. Once again, only the most exposed South facing breaks will see any action, think Huntington, Newport and the San O’ area. The energy is just too steep rest of our So Cal Coastline.

Underachieving NW wind swell will also remain in the picture with 8-10 second intervals from a steep 310-315 degree angle.
