The conditions should be pretty good as a mild high pressure system moves into town. We’re slated to see variable 1-7 MPH breezes all day long, (stronger out of the straight N/NNE below the passes and canyons). The air temp jumps up to the 78 degree mark.
For Tuesday morning the surf will see a subtle increase with the better West facing breaks seeing chest to possibly shoulder high sets. This energy will be coming in from a Westerly 285-290 degrees with 12-14 second intervals.

The conditions look excellent with 8-14 MPH breezes out of the NE/NNE all day long, (much stronger below the passes and canyons). The air temp holds steady at 78 degrees.
For Wednesday morning things will start to get interesting as some fresh, bruising ground swell fills in through the day. The morning will start off on the timid side, (size wise), but some larger scout sets will start to fill in later in the morning and by sunset the top West facing breaks should see OH to DOH sets.

The conditions should be pretty good again with 5-9 MPH breezes out of the N/NNE until noon, (stronger below the passes and canyons), and 3-9 MPH breezes out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp remains 78 degrees.
Thursday morning looks solid with OH to DOH + sets at the top West facing breaks. This swell will also have quite a bit of West in it, roaring in from a liberal 280-285 degrees with muscle flexing 18-20+ second intervals. The Beach breaks may be a bit brutal unless your Navy Seal Training Certificate is valid. The points, reefs, jetties and more southerly facing breaks hold more promise of order and shape, but pick your poison. It will be PUMPING!

The conditions look to mirror those of Wednesday with 1-8 MPH breezes out of the N/NNE until noon, (stronger below the passes and canyons), and 8-11 breezes out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp dips a hair to 77 degrees.

I’ll be back on Monday with the next update!
