HURRICANE WATCH October 21st, 2014 – The Eastern Pacific Basin remains quiet, and no tropical development is expected for the next several days.
In the central Pacific Basin, Ana continues to slowly weaken. The storm will make a turn more to the north tonight and Wednesday then accelerate to the northeast toward the end of the week and into the weekend. Ana will try to re-strengthen some Wednesday and Thursday, but it will remain below hurricane strength.
For Wednesday morning that same swell will continue to crank out head high to overhead sets through the morning and then very slowly start to ease up into the afternoon. This ground swell will continue to roll in from 295-300 degree angle and likely continue to dish up closed out surf at most of the West facing beach breaks. If you found good waves today, they’ll be there tomorrow… don’t tell anyone but me where you surfed though… mums the word!

The conditions look pretty good with variable winds out of the East in the 2-5 MPH zone until noon, (stronger below the passes and canyons), and then those will only get up to 6-8 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp jumps up to 76 degrees.
For Thursday morning, that ground swell will continue to produce some decent surf as less consistent, chest to head high sets march into the best West facing breaks. The swell angle remains right around 300 degrees.

The conditions look good as high pressure promotes a clean ocean surface. We’ll see variable breezes, out of the East, in the 1-3 MPH zone until noon, (stronger below the passes and canyons), and then those only get up to 6-8 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp heats up to 77 degrees.
For Friday morning the NW swell will be on the drop but there still should be some chest to shoulder high sets rolling in at the best West facing breaks.

The conditions look okay with variable winds out of the East in the 1-4 MPH zone until noon and then those get up to 5-7 MPH out of the West later in the day. The air temp tops out at 77 degrees.
For Saturday morning that NW energy will be on it’s way to the hospice but twitch out a few more inconsistent sets in the waist to chest high range for top West facing breaks.
Another pulse of NW swell, from an angle of 300-305 degrees should start to fill in later in the day. The most exposed West facing breaks, that are receptive to swell from that angle, should see chest to shoulder high sets.

2014-10-25 Sat 11:29 PM 4.12 feet High Tide
The conditions look okay as high pressure starts to break down and we have a light onshore flow with 2-6 MPH breezes out of the West until noon and onshore winds in the 10-14 MPH zone in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 72 degrees.
For Sunday morning that NW energy should peak in the AM with chest to shoulder high zone from that same steep 300 + degree angle.
The wind projections are calling for some fierce winds in the Santa Barbara channel all day which means we should see a nice little burst of short interval NW wind swell for the West facing breaks on Monday morning. That could change but as of today it looks good on paper.
