Monday morning looks a bit smaller as all swells are on the fade but there will still be plenty of surf left and there’s a good chance at clean morning conditions.

We’ll have NW wind swell in the chest high plus zone and that studly SW swell will continue with a swagger and dish up head high to maybe overhead sets at the top South facing breaks.

The conditions look fair early with variable breezes in the 1-5 MPH zone until 10AM and those will get up to 10-12 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp warms up to 73 degrees.

Tuesday morning should be another fun one with some fresh 14-16 second ground swell from a steep 310 degree angle. That will put the better West facing breaks into the chest to shoulder high range.

The South swell will be on the fade with 14 second intervals from that same 190 degree angle. It will be less consistent with longer waits between the sets, but when they roll in there should be chest high waves for the better South facing beaches.

The conditions excellent as high pressure moves in and generates NNE breezes in the 9-15 MPH zone all day long, (stronger below the passes and canyons). The air temp skyrockets to a balmy 83 degrees on the sand.

The current water temps Newport 59 degrees, Huntington 57 degrees, the South Bay showed as 63 degrees, Santa Monica 64 degrees and Malibu 52 degrees.

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