HURRICANE WATCH: Tropical Depression Eleven-E remains poorly organized on Sunday morning. The depression is currently located nearly 500 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja California and is moving toward the northwest, away from land at about 17 mph with maximum sustained winds near 35 mph, with some isolated higher gusts to near 45 mph.
Strengthening to a tropical storm is not expected. Elsewhere, the Eastern Pacific basin is quiet and development is not expected through at least the next 48 hours.
Monday morning looks like more small surf with a little, 310 degree NW wind swell dishing up waist high waves for the best West facing breaks.

The conditions don’t change much with variable breezes in the 1-3 MPH zone until 10AM and 9-11 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 80 degrees.
Tuesday looks about the same with knee to waist high wind swell from that same steep 305-310 degree angle.
There’s a slim chance at some super steep Tropical Storm swell, (155-165), getting into select spots in the OC, but definitely not enough to warrant expending any energy hunting it down.
