The conditions look pretty good for spots that like a Southerly wind direction. We’ll see 1-4 MPH winds out of the E/SE/SSE until noon and 6-8 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp drops off to 64 degrees.
For Sunday morning we’ll see a mish mash of leftover swell that should keep most spots in the waist high plus zone. The tides and winds are looking pretty good so there should be at least a little something to play with out there.
By late Sunday afternoon we’ll start to see some long interval pulses out of the SW. Although not a big swell it will have a little umph to it with 16-18 second intervals from a fairly user friendly 200 degree angle.

For Monday morning we’ll see that SW energy dish up waist high plus sets with a few larger waves at the most exposed SW facing beaches. The swell will have 16-17 second intervals which should make for some fun little waves at any break that gets a sniff of the SOuth.
