Major winter storm about to slam the region tonight. Winds are ramping up and will be blowing gale force from the south/southeast overnight. By the time the storm exits tomorrow - winds will shift strongly to the northwest and should blow from that direction all day Wednesday and Thursday. Look for conditions to improve Friday and into the weekend with northeast winds Friday morning and "variable" winds on Saturday. Swell wise - 6ft at 10 sec from 290 right now - basically windswell and that will jump up overnight into Thursday in the 5-8 ft range (deepwater swell). Friday and Saturday actually look pretty clean - with smaller surf. Probably some left over storm sickness on the surface Friday - however Saturday should feature pretty nice conditions. Get through the next couple days and things should be good after. cya in the water.
