HURRICANE WATCH September 9th, 2014 – A low pressure system centered a couple hundred miles south of Acapulco, Mexico, is slowly becoming better organized. A tropical depression is likely to form by either Wednesday or Thursday and a tropical storm or even a hurricane cannot be ruled out later this week. The next name would be Odile and initially, the tropical system will send some higher swells and rough surf to the southwest Mexican coast over the next few days. Later this week or weekend, it could attempt to brush the coastline between Manzanillo and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, potentially bringing heavy rain and gusty winds to the region.
Wednesday morning looks smaller as Norbert pulls a Houdini early and there are only sporadic pulses left from the SW energy. We will however have a small burst of of 200 degree angle SW fill in overnight. This should be good for waist to chect high sets at the better S/SW facing beaches.

Thursday morning should have some fun sets out of the SW as that long period swell from an angle of 200 degrees peaks in the morning. This should put the better South facing beaches in the waist to chest high zone.
