For Saturday morning things will start off on the slow side, but we do have some fresh NW energy scheduled to build in later in the day. This new swell will move in from a 285-295 degree angle with 14-16 second intervals.
An early morning high tide, coupled with a slow building swell will make for a less than exciting dawn patrol, but look for some scout sets to start showing up in the afternoon and continue to gain steam later in the day.

The conditions look okay for the morning with light and variable winds in the 1-4 MPH zone until noon and a mild 6-8 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp bumps up a hair to 67 degrees.
For Sunday morning that swell will peak and produce head high to overhead + surf from that same 285-295 degree angle with 14-16 second intervals. This will be in effect for the West facing breaks only. South and SW facing beaches will be much smaller and less consistent.

The conditions look about the same with continued light and variable winds in the 0-5 MPH zone until noon and 6-9 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air tops out at 68 degrees.
By Monday morning that swell will back down, but the better West facing breaks should still be good for shoulder to head high sets through the morning and slowly fade into the afternoon.

For Tuesday morning we’ll see another NW swell move in and it should be in play by first light. This energy will move in from a 285-295 degree angle with 14-16 second intervals. The better West facing breaks will see overhead to well OH sets, but the sea surface may be a bit messy with all of the wind out there.
