Follow us on Facebook Check it out!
HURRICANE WATCH: Tropical Depression 19E remains unorganized today but is poised to strengthen as it moves westward over the open waters of the Pacific. The storm is moving through an area of warm waters and will probably develop into Tropical Storm Olaf within the next 24 hours. Stay tuned!
Saturday morning looks like a good day to knock out those chores and take care of the things you blew off during this last great week of waves! We’re not anticipating much more than knee to waist high surf most everywhere with a few sporadic sets out of the SW.

The conditions look fair with variable breezes in the 2-5 MPH zone until 11AM and 7-9 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp holds at 78 degrees.
Sunday starts off small with continued knee to waist high surf but a new, NW, medium interval swell will fill in later in the day. This one has a pretty good angle of 285-295 degrees and should put the most exposed West facing breaks into the chest to shoulder high range.

The conditions look fair with variable breezes out of the E/SE in the 2-5 MPH zone until noon and 9-11 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp backs down to a still toasty 77 degrees.
Monday has potential to be good as that aforementioned NW swell peaks in the AM, (from that same 285-295 degree angle), and dished up chest to shoulder high sets at the top West facing beaches.
Coupled with that will be some fresh 16-18 second ground swell out of the SW from a 215-220 degree angle. This swell should send waist to chest high plus sets to the South facing breaks and it has enough West in the direction to pay a visit to any beach with a sniff of the South.
The tides change very little so what you see is pretty much what you get!

The conditions look similar to those of Sunday with E/SE breezes in the 5-8 MPH zone until noon and 9-11 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp holds at 76 degrees.
Tuesday should be another fun morning for waves, as all energy backs down through the day. We should still see some inconsistent, waist to chest high sets out of the SW and fading NW energy in the chest high plus range through the AM.

The conditions look a little iffy with the wind models calling for variable onshore breezes in the 1-6 MPH zone until noon and 7-9 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The onshore push may be a miscalculation from the wind model. From what I can tell, high pressure should be building in and Santa Ana conditions may take over! The air temp tops out at 84 degrees.
The current water temps Newport 71 degrees, Huntington 73 degrees, the South Bay showed as 75 degrees, Santa Monica 73 degrees and Malibu 72 degrees.
I’ll be back on Sunday with the next update!
