SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 6-2-15
Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
HURRICANE WATCH: The sustained winds around Andres have weakened to 85 mph, making it a Category 1 hurricane and the storm will continue to lose strength over the next 24 hours. Hurricane Andres will track northwestward over increasingly cooler waters and will likely become a tropical storm tonight.
Meanwhile, Blanca, about 410 miles south of Manzanillo Mexico, has strengthened into a hurricane and it will continue to intensify rapidly over the next 24-36 hours. It is expected to move very slowly over the next day or two. Later this week, it is expected to move northward and could move very close to or over the Baja California peninsula this weekend. Before it makes it that far north, it will encounter much cooler water and will start weakening.
Wednesday morning should be pretty good with a mix of fading Hurricane Andrew swell, (175-180 degrees), holding SW ground swell, (210-215 degrees), and a building NW wind swell, (305-310 degrees).
The South facing breaks should go chest to shoulder high, the South West combo spots should do better and the West facing breaks will see some waist to chest high wind swell. Looks like you’ll need to do a little work to find surf but it’ll be out there. Just follow the context clues!

The conditions look okay with variable winds, out of S/SE/SSE the in the 5-8 MPH range until noon and 9-11 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 70 degrees.
Thursday morning continues to hold promise as we’ll see continued SW energy in the chest high range. Not as consistent as Weds but till some decent sets for the beaches receptive to 210-215 degree angle.
If things go as planned we’ll also see a decent burst of NW wind swell with the best West facing breaks seeing chest high plus peaks.
The combo beach breaks could be pretty fun but we kick things off in the hole with a minus tide a little after first light!

The conditions could go either way with variable S/SE/SSE, 4-10 MPH breezes until 11AM and 10-12 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 70 degrees and there’s a meager 10% chance of rain.
Friday morning both the SW energy and the NW wind swell will back down a bit with inconsistent waist to chest high high sets. The NW wind swell will will be a bit smaller too but should be good for waist to chest high peaks.

The conditions look a little iffy with 2-8 MPH breezes out of the South until 11AM and 10-12 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 67 degrees.
By Saturday morning all energy will continue to back down and toil in the waist high plus zone with leftover SW sets and NW background energy!
Hurricane Blanca should work her way into the fold later in the day but it looks like she probably won’t move out to the West enough to send an abundance of swell into So Cal. Right now it looks like the angle would be 150-160 degrees which is sideways and will only get into the most exposed South facing breaks. Mother Nature doesn’t always follow the script so at this point this is only a hypothesis!

The conditions look passable with variable 1-3 MPH breezes until 10AM and 9-14 MPH winds out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at a comfortable 68 degrees.
By Sunday morning, if the models play out as planned, the most exposed South facing breaks should see fairly consistent head high plus surf from an agonizingly steep angle of 160 degrees. Many spots will receive little to no swell due to the severity of the angle. The OC and San O’ areas will do best.
