HURRICANE WATCH August 14, 2014 – Julio is a tropical storm well north of the Hawaiian Islands and is no threat to land. Julio will continue to lose strength as it tracks northward over colder ocean water and will lose its tropical characteristics heading into the weekend.
Tropical Storm Karina continues to strengthen over the eastern Pacific and is located about 555 miles to the southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. This system is moving to the west and is expected to strengthen further over the next 24 to 48 hours and could become a hurricane later today.
An area of disturbed weather roughly 1,200 miles east-southeast of Hawaii remains disorganized. However, computer forecasts suggest a more favorable environment might develop over this system, allowing it to become better organized, but this could take a few days.
For Saturday morning we’ll be left with waist high surf for the top South facing breaks. Both the SW and S energy will be on the decline so expect to do a bit of waiting between sets.

The conditions look okay with light onshore winds in the 2-4 MPH zone until 10AM and then those pick up to 10-12 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 79 degrees.
Sunday morning is looking pretty feeble as the 2 South swells get Deep Sixed. * There is however a chance at some Hurricane swell showing up. If it does indeed materialize the first part of the swell will be moving up the line from a super steep 160-170 degree angle and only get into the extreme South facing breaks. This is all speculation at this point so stay tuned.
