For Wednesday morning we’ll see a bump in size for the better West facing breaks as some long interval, NW ground swell moves in from a 290-300 degree angle. This energy should have a little pop to it with 14-16 second intervals and chest to shoulder high + waves for the top West facing beaches.

The conditions look fair, with variable 3-6 MPH breezes until noon and 9-11 MPH winds, out of the West, in the afternoon. There’s a 10% chance of rain and the air temp tops out at 66 degrees.
Thursday might be okay early, but wicked winds will whip into town early and tear up the ocean for at least 2 consecutive days. If you can do the dawn patrol do it and you may be able to get a few good ones before the conditions deteriorate.
The NW energy from Wednesday will be on the fade, but some fresh medium + interval energy will be filling in right on its heels and build through the day. It will definitely be worth a look early before the winds move in.

The conditions start off okay with variable 1-3 breezes until 10AM or so and then things will change quickly jumping into double digit onshore gusts, and some places will see winds in excess of 15 + MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 68 degrees.
For Friday the surf will be OH to well OH, but expect confused, junky, choppy, wind swell mixing in with some fairly potent ground swell. Plenty of waves but it will, in all likelihood, be pretty ugly, (one of my favorite oxymorons), out there.

The conditions look poor with stiff, 16-25 MPH breezes out of the West all day long. The air temp tops out at 72 degrees.
For Saturday morning we have a shot at getting some good surf if the winds cooperate, (which is a bit of a question mark). As of today we’re anticipating all energy to back down considerably, but the best West facing beaches will still have plenty of meat left on that bone with surf remaining in the head high to OH zone.

The conditions remain a bit of a question mark. Hopefully it calms down enough overnight to provide us with a fairly smooth sea surface… It might be okay, with variable 2-8 MPH breezes until noon and then 10-13 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 71 degrees.
Sunday should be cleaner, but smaller, with waist to chest high + surf on the brunch menu. That will continue to dissipate through the day.
