Hurricane Watch Lidia has weakened to a tropical rainstorm
Lidia has weakened and is now a tropical rainstorm west of the northern Baja California Peninsula. Lidia will continue to track toward the northwest and dissipate over the next couple of days.
Locally heavy rainfall will continue to have an impact on the northern Baja California Peninsula Sunday afternoon and evening. Some spots can have an additional 1-2 inches. Given the mountainous terrain, flash flooding and mudslides will continue to be of concern. Moisture from Lidia will bring some rain into parts of Southern California into Sunday evening, but will not be really significant.
For Monday morning that Southerly energy will dip in the waist high + zone with a few larger sets at the top spots. The angle will remain 205-210 degrees and the intervals will dip to 14 seconds. Not much to work with but better than nothing and it should be another toasty beach day.
