SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED on September-3-2019
HURRICANE WATCH: Hurricane Juliette will continue to move northwestward over the next several days and will move through environmental conditions conducive for further strengthening over the next 12 hours or so. This should allow Juliette to become a Category 4 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson wind scale later on Tuesday. Given these conditions through Wednesday, Juliette is expected to remain a Category 4 hurricane through Wednesday. Juliette will remain over the open waters of the Eastern Pacific Ocean and will pose no direct threat to land. However, large swells will impact coastal areas of southwestern Mexico through the southern Baja Peninsula this week.
Elsewhere across the East Pacific, no development is expected over the next several days.
For Wednesday morning it looks like we’ll see knee to waist high surf throughout the AM with the possibility of some Tropical Hurricane Juliette generated surf working its way into the only the most exposed South facing breaks, (160-165 degrees).
8another decent tide push throughout the mid morning.
