HURRICANE WATCH September 19th, 2014 – Tropical Storm Polo is moving very slowly westward off the west coast of mainland Mexico. While the brunt of the wind and rain associated with Polo will remain offshore, outer rain bands from the system will impact the immediate coast of the Mexican state of Jalisco in the short term. In addition, a few wind gusts to around 40 mph will be possible right at the coast.
Elsewhere, the remnants of Odile will continue to bring the threat for flooding rainfall across southeastern New Mexico and western Texas through Saturday.
While no other tropical development is expected in the immediate future, there are indications that a system may attempt to develop off the coast of Central America later this weekend or early next week.
Saturday morning may still have some surf left as the SW and NW ground swell fade through the day. There’s also some small, 8-10 second NW wind swell in the mix. The way that SW energy has stayed under the radar I wouldn’t be shocked if there are still a few sizeable sets rolling through.
A pretty high tide at 8:30AM will definitely slow things down so you might want to crack it at first light if you want to scrape up a couple of early bird worms!

Sunday morning looks like a good time to go to church and pray for surf… unfortunately, knee to waist high is all that will be on offer. *Hurricane Polo hasn’t picked a definitive direction just yet so we’ll have to wait and see if it spins out to the NW, (and shoots us some swell), or hugs to Coast and continues clobber Mexico!
