HURRICANE WATCH:

As of early Friday morning, there were no active tropical cyclones in the East Pacific Basin but we are monitoring an area of low pressure several hundred miles south of the southern tip of Baja California.

While this system is producing numerous showers and thunderstorms, it remains highly disorganized based on satellite imagery. Despite being disorganized at this time, slow development of this feature is possible during the next few days as it continues on a northwestward track away from land.

Saturday looks smallish again with short, 8-10 second interval energy out of the NW and sporadic blips out of the SW. We’re anticipating waist high surf most everywhere.

By Monday 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 215-220 degrees with 14-15 second intervals.

Tuesday should still be okay as that SW energy dips down a hair but continues to provide some waist high plus sets in the AM and slowly fade out later in the day.

We’ll also see some small, but potent, 16-18 second interval swell roll in from a 215-220 degree angle later in the day. That should cough up some powerful little waist high plus sets.
