SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED on September-15-2019
______________________________________________________________________________________________________

HURRICANE WATCH: ALABAMA IN JEOPARDY AGAIN! Kiko has rapidly intensified over the past 24 hours and is now a Category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale as of Sunday morning. Kiko should maintain strength this afternoon before encountering less favorable atmospheric conditions Sunday night into Monday.

In addition, we may see yet another tropical system develop early this week closer to the coast of southern Mexico. While recent computer model output keeps this future developing system offshore, it will be close enough that a small shift northward in the projected track would lead to land impacts. As a result, this will be monitored closely in the coming days.

A second area of tropical development may occur nearly at the same time a little farther south and west. This system will have a better chance to remain off the coast of Mexico, but with the other system forming closer to land, it will help stir up rough seas and large waves along the southern coast of Mexico.

In the central Pacific, a pair of weak disturbances are located well to the south and southeast of Hawaii. The disturbance to the south of Hawaii is expected to track to the northwest and into unfavorable conditions with development not expected. The system to the southeast of Hawaii is in an area in which conditions are expected to become more favorable for tropical development in the coming days. This may slowly develop into a tropical depression while tracking generally to the west.
