HURRICANE WATCH 11-5-13
The Pacific Basin has become quiet once again. Strong vertical wind shear continues to dominate the upper-level wind structure. Current information suggests no support for tropical development through the next several 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. It won’t be as consistent as Wednesday but there will still be some fun sets.
