SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED on 7-25-2019
HURRICANE WATCH: Dalila has weakened into a post-tropical cyclone approximately 700 miles west of the southern tip of Baja California. Highest sustained winds are estimated to be near 25 mph with movement to the northwest at 7 mph. A center of circulation remains, which is clearly marked by a robust swirl of low-level clouds. Dalila will continue to drift northwestward Thursday, while encountering cooler waters and continued wind shear. It will not have any major impacts to land.
Over the course of the next week, AccuWeather meteorologists are monitoring several disturbances that will track well to the south and southwest of Mexico. We may see the development of at least one additional tropical depression or storm through the end of the month, though at this point indications point toward no impacts to land.
For Friday morning we will dip into the chest to possibly shoulder high zone with a few larger sets, (for the top South facing breaks), and that will get incrementally smaller and less consistent with each passing set.
