For Thursday morning that swell will back down a bit more, but remain solid with shoulder to head high + sets at the better West facing beaches. In conjunction with the fading ground swell we’ll see some fresh NW wind swell mix in.

The conditionslook good pretty for the AM with 3-5 MPH breezes out of the NE/NNE until noon and those mellow to 2-6 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp checks in at 61 degrees and there’s now a 40% chance of rain.
For Friday morning the swell will continue to fade leaving us with less consistent, remnant energy in the chest to maybe shoulder high zone for the top West facing breaks.
* A 6 foot high tide will muffle the swell through the prime morning hours but recede quickly later in the AM.

The conditionslook pretty good for the morning with 1-3 MPH winds out of the East until 11AM and 5-7 MPH out of the West into the afternoon. The air temp checks in at 60 degrees.
Saturday morning will start off very slow with waist high plus surf being swallowed whole by a 6.35 ft high tide just before 7:00AM.
The better news is that we’ll see some new, long interval, 16-18 second interval ground swell start to weave it’s way in starting late morning and continuing throughout the day. We could see some scout sets move in early but the rest of the troops aren’t due to ride into town until late morning/early afternoon. The top spots should dish up head high to well overhead sets when the swell actually does fill in.
