Mix of south and small northwest for the weekend....
South swell showing 2.5 at 14 from 195 - small pulse of northwest swell at 2.8 at 11 from 290. The winds are the issue - been blowing west to northwest all day messing everything up. The main energy in the jetstream is just to our north in Oregon - keeping this moist/cloudy airmass around, even though were on the southern extent of the storms. We have a chance of rain again tonight, through the weekend and on and off again most of next week. In short, no big warm up, no high pressure (but then again, no HOWLING nw winds either) - just murky weather. Look for s/sw winds Saturday/Sunday. The sw swell is suppose to pulse up a bit more over the weekend - northwest swell will probably stay around the same size. Best bet is to probably surf very early before the winds gain speed later in the day. Cya in the water.
