The conditions should be fair for the AM for spots that like a Southerly direction wind. We’ll see breezes out of the S/SSE in the 2-5 MPH zone until 11AM and 9-11 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 65 degrees.
On Saturday morning that swell will hold with shoulder to head high surf at the exposed West facing breaks but from the looks of things we’re in for some unsavory onshore winds.

The conditionslook a little iffy with gusty onshore winds out of the West right out of the gate and those will get up to 25 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 62 degrees.
On Sunday morning that wind swell will hold with chest to shoulder high surf at the exposed West facing breaks. With all that wind it the water temp will likely dip and it will take some time for Mother Nature to iron out those wind bumps overnight.
