SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA SURF FORECAST UPDATED 9-2-13
HURRICANE WATCH 9-2-13
Satellite imagery of Tropical Depression Kiko shows a well-defined system with good symmetry. However, there is a glaring lack of thunderstorm activity which indicates that Kiko is not a strong system. Kiko is moving over increasingly cool ocean water which will weaken the system even further into Monday night.
If fact, Kiko should lose tropical characteristics over the next 24 hours with no warm water available. Kiko will produce some rough surf and dangerous rip currents along the Baja California coast for the balance of Monday before conditions improve quickly Tuesday into Wednesday.
Tuesday morning won’t see any drastic changes with small blips of energy out of both the SW and NW adding up to knee to waist high surf everywhere.

The conditions look about the same with winds in the 1-4 MPH zone until 10 and 9-11 MPH winds in the afternoon. The air temp will top out at 77 degrees.
For Wednesday morning we’ll see continued, small scale background swell out of the NW and a slight increase in surf out of the SW from a 190 degree angle at 12-14 seconds. Still not really enough to sink your teeth into, but top South facing breaks should see some sets in the waist high plus zone.
