SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 8-4-13
HURRICANE WATCH 8-4-13
Behind Tropical Depression Gil, a new system strengthened to become Tropical Storm Henriette on Sunday.
For the time being, Henriette is far away from any land, just as Gil was when it formed last week.
The new tropical storm developed from Tropical Depression Eight-E that formed in the eastern Pacific early Saturday morning.
While Gil is expected to track to the south of Hawaii over the next several days, Tropical Storm Henriette likely will take a different path.
Henriette currently looks to take a more northerly path early in the week. However, by moving into cooler waters, the storm will weaken by the middle of the week.
Monday morning looks smaller as the SW energy continues to die. Expect inconsistent waist high plus sets for the better West facing beaches.
The NW wind swell will continue to dish up waist to chest high wind peaks for the better West facing beaches.
