HURRICANE WATCH: Currently, there are no organized tropical systems in the eastern Pacific basin, and no development is likely for at least the next few days.

Monday morning starts off small but we do have some 14-16 second interval NW ground swell brewing. That will fill in through the day from a steep 305-310 degrees and put the most exposed West facing breaks into the shoulder to head high zone later in the day.

High tide plays a role in the morning scenario… especially if we don’t see any scout sets from the impending NW energy early.

The conditions look fair with variable breezes out of the East in the 2-8 MPH zone until noon and then jump up to 10-16 MPH winds out of the West in the afternoon. There’s a 20% chance of rain and the air temp tops out at 66 degrees.

Tuesday could go either way, but is leaning toward crummy. The outer water winds are slated to start blowing hard Monday night so if everything I see on paper today holds true we’ll see a boat load of NW wind swell, coupled with peaking NW ground swell and onshore winds. Top West facing beaches will see shoulder to head high plus surf, but it likely won’t be pretty.

The conditions look to be poor with onshore/Westerly winds in the 6-15 MPH zone all day long. The air temp holds steady at 66 degrees.

For Wednesday morning we will see fading NW ground swell and a decent dose of wind swell in the chest to possibly shoulder high zone at the best West facing beaches.

The conditionslook a little sketchy with N/NNE breezes in the 3-7 MPH until noon and 8-11 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 69 degrees.

For Thursday morning we will see dropping NW wind swell in he waist high plus range and some new, small but strong, long interval swell out of the SW. This will roll in from a liberal 205-210 degree angle with 17 second intervals. The best spots in the OC and San 0′ areas should see waist to chest high sets.

The conditions may be a bit iffy with what looks to be a little too much North in the wind direction, but the wind models have been flip flopping with regularity, so lets wait and see. We’re anticipating N/NNE breezes in the 3-11 MPH until noon and 8-10 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp climbs to a comfortable 71 degrees.

The current water temps Newport 66 degrees, Huntington 65 degrees, the South Bay showed as 65 degrees, Santa Monica 64 degrees and Malibu 63 degrees.

I’ll be back on Monday with the next update!
