For Wednesday morning things will start to get interesting as some fresh, bruising ground swell fills in through the day. The morning will start off on the timid side, (size wise), but some larger scout sets will start to fill in later in the morning and by sunset the top West facing breaks should see OH to DOH sets.

The conditions should be pretty good again with 1-7 MPH breezes out of the NE/NNE until noon, (stronger below the passes and canyons), mild breezes out of the West until sundown. The air temp remains a toasty 78 degrees.
Thursday morning looks to be SOLID with OH to DOH + sets at the top West facing breaks. This swell will also have quite a bit of West in it, roaring in from a liberal angle of 280-285 degrees with muscle flexing 18-20+ second intervals.
The Beach breaks may be a bit brutal unless your Navy Seal Training Certificate is valid. The points, reefs, jetties and more southerly facing breaks hold more promise of order and shape, but pick your poison. It will be PUMPING!

The conditions look to mirror those of Wednesday with 2-7 MPH breezes out of the NE/NNE until noon, (stronger below the passes and canyons), and 6-9 breezes out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp dips a hair to 76 degrees.
For Friday morning the surf will start to back down a bit but there will be plenty of meat left on that bone. The best West facing breaks will continue to dish up OH to Well OH sets all morning and slowly taper off further in the afternoon.

The conditions look fair as high pressure slowly breaks apart. We’re anticipating light and variable winds at 1-3 MPH until 11AM and 7-10 MPH breezes out of the West through the afternoon. The air temp plummets to 73 degrees.
For Saturday morning another thumping swell should be in play for the dawn patrol. This next system will also have quite a bit of West in it tracking in at a 285-290 degree angle. This swell will also pack quite a punch with ass kicking 18-20 second intervals and OH to DOH set waves for the best West facing breaks.
Once again, the West facing beaches will likely be a bit daunting, but this swell should get into most all breaks with even the South facing beaches getting a nice little taste of the action.

The conditions look just like Friday with variable 1-3 MPH breezes until 11AM and 8-12 MPH winds out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp holds steady at 73 degrees.
For Sunday morning the surf will see a subtle decrease in size, but the better West facing breaks will be seeing OH to Well OH sets. This energy will slowly continue to back down through the day but there will be plenty of surf out there for the taking.
