Tuesday morning is looking pretty feeble with just smallish knee to waist high plus surf on tap.

The conditions look average at best with variable, 2-5 MPH winds until 11 and 9-11 MPH breezes out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 65 degrees.

For Wednesday morningwe’ll see a slight bump in surf, with waist to maybe chest high sets at the stand out West facing beaches that can take a steep 300 degree swell. The conditions look compromised, and unless there are some drastic changes to the wind and wave models over the next day, my wake up alarm will remain in coma mode.

The conditions look poor with 2-6 MPH onshore winds early, but those will jump up to 10-25 MPH quickly and blow into Thursday. There’s now only a 10% chance of rain and the air temp tops out at 63 degrees.

For Thursday morning should have a little more size with chest to shoulder high sets at the standout West facing breaks. Looks like it might be a little junky out there, but there will be some 12-14 second interval swell from a continued steep angle of 295-300 degrees.

Not looking real promising but hey, its late March!
