Hurricane Watch The eastern and central Pacific tropical basins remain devoid of any tropical activity, and no development is likely for at least the next 24-48 hours.
There is a very slight chance the vestiges of Tropical Storm Franklin may make it over the Sierra Madre Plateau later this week and potentially redevelop over the Eastern Pacific. There are still many uncertainties with regards to this possibility.
An area off the west coast of Central America will have to be monitored for possible development sometime this upcoming weekend.
Wednesday morning, I’m sorry to say looks like another stinker with knee 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 Thursday morning should be a bit better with 2 South pulses moving in. 1 from a steep 185 degrees and the other a more moderate 200-205 degrees. Nothing too impressive but it should give the better South facing beaches waist to maybe chest high sets!

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.

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.
