SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 10-11-13
HURRICANE WATCH 10-11-13
There is a medium chance that the storm becomes a depression or tropical storm this weekend. The track of this system will likely curve northward and track close to, if not make landfall in, the Baja Peninsula of Mexico. If the storm takes this track, there can be heavy rain across the southern Baja early next week.
Additionally, Narda dissipated in the Eastern Pacific on Thursday.
Saturday morning should be yet another fun day for the better South facing breaks. That 195-200 degree SW swell will continue to pulse in waist to chest high sets. The consistency will taper of through the day, with longer lulls and fewer waves per set.
