SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 8-5-13
HURRICANE WATCH 8-5-13
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 8-E that formed in the eastern Pacific early Saturday morning.
This is the track Henriette is likely to take over the coming days.
While the remnants of Gil are expected to track to the south of Hawaii over the next several days, Tropical Storm Henriette likely will take a different path.
Henriette appears like it will take a more northerly path, likely strengthening into a hurricane by Tuesday. As it continues to track to the west-northwest through late week, Henriette will encounter cooler water and weaken.
The storm is projected to reach near Hawaii by late in the weekend, perhaps enhancing showers and stirring higher surf.
Tuesday morning looks even smaller with inconsistent, waist high surf for the better South facing spots.
