SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED on October-15th-2019
______________________________________________________________________________________________________

HURRICANE WATCH: Close to the southern coast of Mexico, a broad area of low pressure has developed and can become better organized during the next few days as it tracks to the northwest, generally parallel to the coast. The low continues to produce large clusters of thunderstorms, though lacks enough organization to be called a tropical depression. There is concern that this will develop into a tropical depression or storm in the coming days, but the close proximity to land will limit the amount of development.

Also, an area of disturbed weather roughly 1,200 miles to the southwest of Baja California may gradually form a centralized area of low pressure later this week and develop into a tropical depression. This will remain well removed from land and is not expected to bring impacts, though will be monitored in the coming days.
