HURRICANE WATCH November 7, 2014 – An area of low pressure located several hundred miles south of Manzanillo, Mexico, has begun to show some better organization to the shower and thunderstorm activity associated with the low. The environment is favorable for additional development during the next few days as it tracks westward across the eastern Pacific. The disturbance is small in size right now, but it is expected to grow over the coming days. If a low-level center can strengthen and develop, then there is the possibility of a tropical cyclone forming.

Saturday morning looks no better with a meager offering of swell and another buzz killer of a tide. The weather remains great but surfing doesn’t look to be part of the daily agenda.

The conditions look great again with Easterly winds in the 2-8 MPH zone until noon, (expect stronger gusts below the passes and canyons), and those remain tame throughout the day. The air temp dips a hair to 80 degrees.

For Sunday morning the broken record will continue scratching the vinyl as we see a repeat of feeble background energy in the knee to waist high range, but a slightly more manageable first light tide.
