HURRICANE WATCH: We are monitoring two areas across the East Pacific Basin right now for potential development.
The first area is a low pressure center around 1,100 miles to the east-southeast of the Hawaii Islands. This system appears increasingly unlikely to develop as it moves to the west-northwest into a zone of higher wind shear.
The second area we are watching is a cluster of showers and thunderstorms associated with a low pressure center currently around 1,400 miles southwest of Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. This feature is expected to organize into a tropical depression over the next several days as thunderstorms are slowly becoming more symmetrical about a low-level center. In the longer range, this system will move to the northwest and has the potential to impact the Hawaiian Islands in about a week.
Tuesday morning we’ll see another little burst of SW energy move in and dish up inconsistent waist to chest high sets, (with some larger waves for the top spots), throughout the day.
This small, but long interval swell will move in from a liberal angle of 210220 degrees and push some sets into any beach with a peek at the South.
