HURRICANE WATCH: There are no active tropical cyclones in the East Pacific Basin, we are, however, monitoring an area of low pressure several hundred miles south of the southern tip of Baja California.
This system features numerous showers and thunderstorms but remains highly disorganized at this time. Slow development of this feature will be possible in the coming days.
By Thursday that SW energy should put the top South facing beaches into the waist to chest high zone on the sets. Any beach that gets a peek at the South West will get at least a little taste of energy. The swell angle will roll in from a liberal angle of 220 degrees with 14-15 second intervals.
