HURRICANE WATCH: Sandra is now a major Category 3 hurricane. The storm is located over 500 miles southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. Sandra is over open waters and is moving parallel to land at this time.
Further strengthening is expected over the next 24 hours as Sandra moves over warm water and through a low wind shear environment. Slow weakening of the storm will begin on Friday.
This one is poised to actually deliver a little swell so stay tuned!
For Thursday morning – Happy Thanksgiving – we will see 10-12 second interval NW wind swell in the chest to shoulder high plus range for the better West facing beaches. The wind models looked good again today, but tides are HUGE in the AM!

The conditions look to improve dramatically, (winds are projected to go offshore at 10 PM Weds night), and should be clean for Thanksgiving morning. Models are calling for E/NE/NNE winds at 5-7 MPH until noon and a mild 6-9 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 63 degrees.
For Friday morning that wind swell will be history and we’ll dip back into the waist high zone for most spots.
* Another high tide will be in play and will likely squash the morning surf.

For Saturday morning there won’t be much of a change for the morning, but we should start seeing a little more NW swell energy start to filter in through the day.
* Tide will come into play again but there’s a chance to maybe get a few waves at first light.

Sunday morning looks a bit better with q slightly larger NW swell putting the best West facing beaches in the chest high plus zone on the sets.
There’s also a chance that the most exposed South facing beaches will get a dose of Hurricane Sandra swell. This one is still pending, but if she stays the current course, spots in the OC and San O’ area could see sets in the chest to Head high zone. Nothing’s etched in stone yet so stay tuned.
* The tides look a bit more reasonable for the AM!
