HURRICANE WATCH 11-4-13
Sonia made landfall as a weak tropical storm early Monday morning and has moved inland and dissipated over mainland Mexico. Rain will continue over western and northern Mexico Monday night.
Elsewhere, there are no immediate threats for development in the eastern Pacific over the next several days.
Tuesday morning should have some 8-10 second NW wind swell in the waist to chest high range, (possibly bigger at the premiere spots), and will also be influenced by a huge high tide at 9:30AM. The good news is that the time change will allow for the dawn patrollers to squeeze in a few rides the tide crashes the party.
It looks like we’ll also start to see some small but potent, 16-18 second ground swell start to show late in the day. This will be from a steep angle of 300-305 degrees so it will likely bypass all but the most exposed West facing breaks on Wednesday.

The conditions look excellent with NE/NNE winds in the 3-10 MPH zone all day long. The air temp will get up to 71 degrees as high pressure moves in and sets up camp for a couple days.
For Wednesday morning we will see continued NW wind swell energy in the waist high range and some longer interval, 14-16 second ground swell from a steep 300-310 degree angle. This energy should put the top spots back into the chest to shoulder high zone on the sets. Due to the steep nature of this system, expect it to bypass all but the most exposed spots.
Once again a monster high tide of 6.36 feet at 10:15AM will cripple most spots mid morning but there will be a nice tidal push for the dawn patrollers.

For Thursday morning we will see a continued combination of NW energy from a 295-305 degree angle, in the waist to chest high range.
