Wednesday morning we’ll see some fresh swell out of the NW from a steep 310-315 degree angle coupled with some medium, 12-14 second interval swell from a 305 degree angle. Combined they should be good for some chest high sets at the MOST EXPOSED West facing beaches.
In conjunction with that our South swell will continue its slow, methodical fade dipping to 14+ second intervals and sporadic chest to shoulder high sets.

The conditions look iffy, but may be okay for breaks that can handle a South wind. Models are calling for 3-6 MPH breezes out of the South until 10AM and 10-12 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. There’s a 10% chance of rain and air temp gets up to 65 degrees on the sand.
Thursday morning that wind swell will hold with chest high sets at the top spots and the South swell will continue die, but dish up inconsistent chest high sets.
