Hurricane Watch Currently, there are no organized tropical systems in the Eastern and Central Pacific basins, and no development is likely for at least the next 24 hours.
There is a slight chance that the remains of Tropical Storm Franklin will make it over the Sierra Madre Plateau and redevelop over the Eastern Pacific late Friday or Saturday. There are still many uncertainties with regard to this possibility and if Franklin does redevelop, the system will be short-lived.
Farther south, a broad area of low pressure now present off the west coast of Central America will have to be monitored for possible development late this weekend or early next week.
Saturday morning is shaping up to be a rock skipping day with knee to waist high surf up and down the coast.

The conditions look tolerable early with onshore winds in the 1-2 MPH zone until 10AM and 5-8 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 76 degrees.
For Tuesday morning should be a bit better but only for the extreme South facing breaks as some fresh ground swell rolls in from a 175-180 degree angle with 16 second intervals. The top spots should see chest to shoulder high sets with larger head high + waves. Most of the swell will extend its middle finger at the coast and skirt on past but breaks in the OC and San O’ areas should be fun.

ABOUT THE SWELLMAGNET FORECAST – One of the most exciting–and yet most challenging–aspects of surfing is the sheer variety of waves and weather conditions that affect the entire surfing experience. Any surfer who is interested in going beyond the most basic level of surfing will have to develop the ability to interpret waves and environmental conditions. This is important for ensuring both a safe and enjoyable experience.
The main difficulty lies in predicting how exactly the ocean and the environment will behave at any given time. One day, you could be riding four-footers all day and the next, you might be facing a glasslike surface with nary a ripple. Conditions can change drastically from day-to-day and even within the space of a couple of hours. To avoid wasted time and unproductive trips to the surf, it is essential to have access to reliable information on surf conditions.
