SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 7-23-13
The area of low pressure south of mexico has moved westward and is now located about 800 miles south-southwest of the southern tip of Baja california. This system has changed little in organization during the past few hours. However…Environmental conditions are expected to become more conducive for development over the next day or so…And this low has a medium chance…30 percent…Of becoming a tropical cyclone during the next 48 hours as it continues to move Westward at about 15 mph
Wednesday morning looks pretty small with just sporadic, leftover sets out of the SW in the waist high range. Looks like pretty slim pickens out there.

The conditions look mediocre again with variable winds out of the West in the 3-6 MPH zone until 10 and back up to 10-15 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp will top out at 70 degrees.
Thursday morning will start off small with waist high stragglers at the top spots. We should, however, see some new, 195-200 degree SW swell start to show later in the day. It doesn’t look to pay any real dividends on Thursday, but Friday morning should see some waist to chest high sets for the South facing beaches.
