The conditions look decent, with variable breezes in the 2-4 MPH zone until 10AM and and those will get up to 8-12 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp hits 59 degrees.
Monday morning should see a little bump in size. A combination of NW wind swell and ground swell will put the better West facing beaches into the waist high plus range.
Some deep water 2 foot at 16-18 send interval swell will start to show later in the day. Thant moves up the line for a fairly steep, 185-190 degree angle and should generate some waist high plus sets by sunset.

The conditions look eehhh… with variable breezes out of the West in the 1-5 MPH zone until 11AM and and those will get up to 10-15 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp rockets up to 74 degrees.
Tuesday morning looks like another so so day with leftover energy out of the NW and that new, small but powerful S/SW ground swell from a 185-190 degree angle. The best spots should see waist high plus spots with the most exposed SOuth facing breaks seeing some slightly larger punchier sets!
