The conditions look fantastic for the morning hours with NE winds in the 6-10 MPH zone until noon and those get up to 7-10 MPH, out of the West, in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 66 degrees.
Thanksgiving Thursday morning is looking pretty weak so if you were planning on working up an appetite out in the surf you better hope the Mayflower is sailing back and forth in front of your surf break kicking up some waves to ride. Actually, there should be waist high sets out there for the best West facing beaches.
The better news is that Friday morning should pick up into the head high plus zone , (for West facing breaks), courtesy of some fresh energy out of the NW.
