By Sunday morning all energy will be on the fade. We’ll be left with smallish, NW wind swell in the waist high zone and fading SW energy in the waist high + range for the better South facing breaks.

The conditions look okay with variable breezes in the 3-6 MPH zone until 10AM and then pick up to 10-12 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air tops out at 73 degrees.
For Monday morning we’ll see continued short interval NW wind swell in the waist high zone, and a fresh burst of 14-16 second interval SW energy from that same 210 degree angle. The best South facing spots will be in the chest high plus range.

The conditions look fair, (for spots that like a South wind), with SE/SSE breezes in the 1-5 MPH zone until 10AM and then pick up to 8-11 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp jumps up to 76 degrees.
For Tuesday morning looks like more of the same, (even a little bigger), with short interval NW wind swell in the waist high zone, leftover 14-16 second interval SW energy, and another SW swell, with the same 210 degree angle, starts to fill in through the day. The top spots in the OC and San O area should see chest to shoulder high sets by sundown.

The conditions look tolerable with variable breezes out of the S/SSE in the 1-4 MPH zone until 10AM and then pick up to 8-11 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp hits a toast 77 degrees on the sand.
For Wednesday morning is shaping up to an interesting day for waves. There are multiple swells from multiple angles and the end result will differ from beach to beach.
That long interval SW swell, (mentioned above), will peak from 200-210 degrees and be good for chest to head high sets at the exposed South facing beaches.
The second swell will consist of some short interval, steeply angled, NW energy and that should generate chest to shoulder high peaks for the better West facing breaks, (and should help to break up that SW energy a bit).
Lastly we’ll have some Hurricane Amanda swell moving up the line from an absolutely sideways 160-170 degree angle. This swell will have some size to it but the extreme angle will only allow it into the super exposed spots like Newport, Huntington a few other select beaches.
The multiple swell angles will make the hunt for surf all that more exciting.

The conditions look decent with light breezes in the 1-4 MPH zone until 10AM and then pick up to 7-9 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 76 degrees.
For Thursday morning we’ll see continued short interval NW wind swell in the waist to chest high zone. The 14-16 second interval SW energy, (210 degrees), will continue in the chest high plus range for the standout South facing breaks. Lastly, that Hurricane swell will continue to get into the exposed South facing breaks with chest high plus sets.
Looks like another pretty fun/solid day for surf.
