HURRICANE WATCH 10-23-13
Tropical Storm Raymond continues to remain over the open waters of the East Pacific. Raymond’s impacts on Mexico will diminish during the next couple of days as the storm heads slowly westward away from land. Raymond is still expected to remain a tropical system for the next few days given the relatively warm water it will be over.
Elsewhere across the East Pacific, tropical development is not expected over the next 24-48 hours.
Thursday morning will be slightly smaller as the steep energy dwindles quickly through the day. Top spots will see inconsistent waist high plus sets.
We also will see continued S/SW energy that seems to be sneaking in under the radar. The best South facing breaks should see waist to maybe chest high sets.

The conditions look fair with variable winds in the 1-3 MPH zone until 11 and 6-10 MPH winds out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp will dip down to 73 degrees.
Saturday morning we will see a bump out of the NW from a steep 300-310 degree angle. Nothing to get real excited about, but the top West facing beaches should see waist to chest high plus sets at the best West facing breaks. The angle remains steep, so only the better spots will see much action.
