APP ISSUES: FYI – The app is shut down for the time being so just go the mobile site on your phones browser, it does exactly the same thing and you can enlarge the live stream with a pinch. The powers that be won’t let me update the APP and re-submit it because they insist it’s too similar to the mobile site…. F’N Apple store messing with me! Sorry for the interruption in service!

Tropical Storm Aletta nearing hurricane status Bud may form in several days
Aletta, the first tropical storm of the 2018 season in the Eastern Pacific Basin, is currently moving west-northwest at 6 mph and will not be a threat to any land.
Aletta is located around 435 miles southwest of Manzanillo, Mexico. Latest satellite imagery suggests that Aletta has become better organized over the last six to 12 hours and is on the verge of hurricane status and could still produce rough surf and dangerous rip currents along the western Mexican coast.
Elsewhere in the basin, an area of disorganized showers and thunderstorms located a few hundred miles south of Guatemala and El Salvador will head steadily westward into an area conducive for development. As such, it appears more likely than not that this system will become better organized, eventually becoming a tropical cyclone. We’ll keep an eye on this one and update on Sunday!
For Friday we’ll see small, sporadic pulses out of the SW in the knee to waist high + range for the better South facing breaks and NW wind swell in the waist high range with 8-10 second intervals from a steep 310 degree angle.

The conditions shouldn’t be too bad with variable, 1-3 MPH breezes until 10AM and 5-11 MPH out of the West in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 72 degrees.
For Saturday we’ll see that small NW wind swell increase into the waist to chest high + range and we’ll also see some powerful SW energy building in later in the day from a 200-205 degree angle and 19-20 second intervals.

The conditions don’t change too much all through the week with variable 1-6 MPH breezes out of the South until noon and 9-11 MPH out of the SW in the afternoon. The air temp hits 74 degrees.
For Sunday we’ll get a healthy dose of surf with the SW energy taking center stage. This swell will have stout 18 second intervals from a liberal angle of 195-205 degree angle. The better spots should see shoulder high to OH surf. In conjunction with that swell we’ll see some larger NW wind swell mix in with chest high surf from 310 degrees and 7-8 second intervals.

The conditions look fair with with 1-3 MPH breezes out of the SE/SSE until 10AM and 5-9 MPH out of the SW in the afternoon. The air temp tops out at 73 degrees.
For Monday morning we’ll see that juicy SW continue to dish up shoulder to HH + sets for the better South facing breaks and pulses and waist to chest high short interval NW wind swell.
In addition there’s a chance that the SUPER exposed South facing beaches might see some sideways Hurricane swell mix in. The angle looks to move in from a discriminating 155-160 degrees, but nothing is etched in stone just yet. Nonetheless the Tropics are alive and kicking right now!

The conditions look tolerable with variable Southerly winds in the 1-6 MPH zone until noon and 7-10 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp heats up to 76 degrees.
For Tuesday morning we’ll see a slight dip in that dominant SW energy but there will still be plenty of chest to HH sets for the better South facing breaks. Smallish NW wind swell will remain in the mix, but dip down into the knee to waist high range. Hurricane Alletta swell remains on the table but if it’s track stays on the same angle only a couple of the extremely South facing beaches will even get a whiff of it.
