SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 10-4-13
HURRICANE WATCH 10-4-13
A cluster of showers and thunderstorms located about 700 miles south of the southern tip of Baja California currently shows no signs of development. That may change in a couple of days as this area moves slowly westward. Elsewhere, there are no other organized features in the eastern Pacific.
For Saturday morningthings will be on the decline as all energy dips down. The West facing breaks should go waist high plus and the better SW facing beaches will see continued waist to chest high sets. Seems like the SW energy showed a little late so hopefully, that’s an indication that it stays around longer!

The conditions look excellent with strong winds out of the NE, in the 8-20 MPH, (stronger between passes and canyons), zone all day long. The air temp will get up to a toasty 88 degrees on the sand.
By Sunday morningwe’ll dip down back into the feeble zone with knee to waist high surf most everywhere. There should be be some inconsistent sets coming in out of the SW, (for the better South facing breaks). There’s a nice tide push through the early morning hours, and with excellent weather and toasty air temps, it might be worth it to roll the dice and check it out.

The conditions look great with winds out of the E/NE, in the 2-10 MPH zone until noon and 8-10 MPH winds out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp will top out at 88 degrees.
Monday morning looks pretty small with the best bet being some new, small, steeply angled NW energy coming in at 305 degrees. This should equate to waist high surf for the best NW facing breaks. The bonus is that there is a huge tide push through the prime surfing hours, so once again, it might be worth a look before the Santa Ana’s turn tail and the coast cools down again.

The conditions look okay with variable winds 0-5 MPH zone until noon and Westerly breezes to 11 in the afternoon. The air temp will dip down to 77 degrees.
Tuesday morning looks pretty weak with just tiny knee to maybe waist high surf at the top spots. High pressure is gone as well as our nice run of swell.

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