Monday morning doesn’t look quite as bleak as originally forecasted. We should see a combination of NW wind swell and some steeply angled, medium interval, NW energy. The best West facing breaks that can handle a 300 + degree angle should go waist high plus with the chance of some chest high sets.

The conditions look okay with light and variable breezes in the 3-6 MPH zone until 11AM and then 10-15 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 62 degrees.
For Tuesday morning that steeply angled, NW swell will funnel in some medium interval waist to chest high sets for the most exposed West facing beaches.

The conditions look pretty good early with variable Easterly breezes in the 4-6 MPH zone until 11AM and then 6-8 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 62 degrees again.
For Wednesday morning, for the first time in a long time, we’ll be hurting for waves. The better breaks will drop down into the waist high zone. There will be another subtle tide push through the morning, so hopefully it adds a little pop to the lackluster scenario.
