HURRICANE WATCH October 9th, 2014 – An area of disturbed weather will emerge off the coast of Nicaragua and Costa Rica this week. The area of low pressure will slowly drift northwestward and will remain in close proximity to land. Development of this feature is expected to be slow due to the proximity of land. Regardless of development, heavy rain, flash flooding and mudslides will threaten portions of western Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala over the next several days.
Elsewhere across the eastern Pacific Basin, no tropical development is expected over the next 24-48 hours.
For Friday morning we’ll see small background swell out of both the SW and NW. There may be a few larger straggler sets out of the SW if you’re lucky enough to be in the right place at the right time, but I would just take care of any pressing matters and wait for the Winter swell season to kick into high gear.

The conditions should be fair + with variable winds in the 1-4 MPH zone until noon and then those get up to 11MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp takes a momentary dip to 73 degrees.
Saturday morning looks pretty feeble with knee to waist high surf up and down the coast.

The conditions should be fair with variable winds in the 2-5 MPH zone until 11AM and then those will get up to 10-12 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp heats back up to a toasty 81 degrees.
For Sunday morning we’ll see some fresh, long interval NW energy move in from a 285-290 degrees, with 16-18 second intervals. This should put the top spots into the chest high zone for the AM and the swell should slowly increase into chest to shoulder high + zone for the afternoon.

The conditions should be fair + with variable winds in the 1-3 MPH zone until noon and go 7-9 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp jumps up to 85 degrees.
By Monday morning we’ll see that long interval NW swell peak with chest to shoulder high plus sets at most West facing breaks and larger waves at the top deep water beaches. The tides look reasonable enough and with another high pressure system in place the conditions should be pretty good all day.

The conditions should be good with variable winds in the 1-5 MPH zone until the early afternoon and then those only get up to 8-10 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp gets tops out at 81 degrees.
For Tuesday morning that same swell will remain strong through the morning with comparable size to Monday and then very slowly ease up into the afternoon. Once again, all the elements look favorable but the sand bars will remain a question mark until we see some more solid swell.
