Early Signs, Week Ahead

Long period, small wnw swell from former Typhoon Merbok hitting our shores tonight - around 2ft at 17 from 290-305 - first long period stuff we've seen from the wnw in a while.  Small southwest energy continues - also around 2ft at 14-17 sec.  In the North Pacific, a strong early season jet stream will start pushing fronts into the Pacific Northwest this week - a good sign that we're starting to move towards Fall.  All we need now are for some of these fronts to push into the Great Basin and give us some offshore winds - nothing like that forecast yet, but the pattern is encouraging.  We'll probably see some windswell later in the week from these early season storms.  Fog and onshore winds look to continue this week - protected spots are going to be cleanest.  Cya in the water.
