The conditions will remain fair with offshore winds at 4-7 until noon and then shift to SW at 7MPH until sundown. There’s a 40% chance of rain and the air temp will plummet to 61 degrees.
For Friday morning we’ll finally see some surf again. Some fresh NW energy should be in play for first light and put the top West facing breaks in the head high to overhead range. The swell angle will have more West in it than we’ve seen in quite some time. This energy, (280-290 degrees with 14-16 second intervals), will get into any beach with a peek at the West and should give at least a little love to select S/SW facing breaks.
