HURRICANE WATCH September 30th, 2014 – Rachel has weakened to a tropical depression as it remains nearly stationary over the open waters of the Pacific. Rachel will continue to weaken over the next 12 to 24 hours and will eventually dissipate completely later today. Look for enhanced surf and rip currents along the western coast of the Baja Peninsula.
A cluster of disorganized weather a few hundred miles south of the Gulf of Tehuantepec is expected to become gradually better organized as it tracks northwestward this week. While imminent development is not expected over the next 24-48 hours, an acquisition of tropical characteristics is looking likely later in the upcoming week.`
Wednesday morning holds a little more promise as a combination of small, steeply angled, NW wind swell moves in from a 310 degree angle with 8-10 second periods.
We’ll also have see a 2 foot, deep water, SW swell roll in from a liberal angle of 220 degrees. Nothing too impressive, but there should be some fun little sets in the waist high plus range for the better South facing beaches. The wind swell should serve up waist high peaks for the top West facing beaches.

The conditions should be a transition day as we plunge into our next heatwave on Thursday. Winds will be out of the SE/SSE in the 3-5 MPH zone until 11AM and remain a light 6-8 MPH in the afternoon. The air temp starts hits the 76 degree mark.
For Thursday morning both swells will be on the decline, offering up waist high sets for the both the South and West facing breaks.
More exciting is that the a new, stronger, SW swell will fill in through the day. This one will have long intervals and move in from a 200-210 degree angle. Bt the end of the day the better South facing breaks should go shoulder to head high with some larger sets at the best South facing breaks.
