There are no areas of concern for tropical development over the next couple of days across the eastern Pacific. There are a few areas of disorganized showers and thunderstorms; however, wind shear will prevent anything from developing for the next couple of days at least.

By Tuesday morning that energy will already be on the fade leaving the best West facing breaks in the waist high plus zone.

The conditions will be okay with light and variable winds in the 1-4 MPH zone until 11AM and a 6-10 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp will top out at 74 degrees.

Wednesday morning looks bleak with knee to waist high surf for the top West facing breaks. Should be gorgeous beach day.

The conditions look fantastic with Santa Ana winds in the 2-5 MPH zone until noon and timid 6-8 MPH breezes out of the West until dark. The air temp will hit 69 degrees.

For Thursday morning we’ll fair no better with feeble knee to waist high background swell, but should see some NW wind swell start to creep in later in the day. An early high tide will make it tough for any spot to really even break with the lack of energy in the water.

The conditions look excellent with stiff, NE winds in the 9-13 MPH zone all day long and stronger below the passes and canyons. The air temp will top out at a balmy 81 degrees.

For Friday morning we’ll see some fresh short interval swell, (8-10 seconds), out of the NW from a steep 310 degree angle. This will put the exposed West facing beaches into the waist to possibly chest high zone.

A monster high tide of 6.20 feet at 7:12 AM will bring most spots to a crawl but the tide will race out through the day culminating in a minus tide at 2:06 PM.

The conditions look great with offshore winds, out of the NE, in the 4-10 MPH until 2PM and mild West winds in the afternoon. The air temp will top out at 74 degrees.

The current water temps Newport 63 degrees, Huntington 63 degrees, the South Bay showed as 63 degrees, Santa Monica 62 degrees and Malibu 62 degrees.
