HURRICANE WATCH November 12, 2014 – The area of low pressure located a couple hundred miles west of Manzanillo, Mexico has failed to become better organized. Shower and thunderstorm activity associated with this feature will move into western Mexico tonight and Wednesday.
Elsewhere across the eastern Pacific Basin, tropical development is not expected through at least Thursday.
By Thursday morning we should see some longer interval swell fill in out of the NW. This will come down the line at a fairly steep angle of 300-310 degrees and should dish up chest to shoulder high + sets for beaches that are receptive to that angle, (with the possibility of some larger sets later in the day at the top deep water West facing breaks).

For Friday morning that NW swell should hit stride with sets in the head high + zone out of the NW at 295-305 degrees. The best West facing breaks should be fun.
