The conditions look good with 3-6 MPH winds out of NE/NNE until 11AM and 8-10 MPH Westerly breezes until Sundown. The air temp tops out at 70 degrees.
Wednesday morning should be okay with waist high plus surf, (possibly chest high sets on the right tide), for the best West facing breaks, but a super high tide at 7:32AM will definitely weaken the small the lines coming in through the prime time morning surf hours.
Hopefully we don’t get boned by that fog bank again!
