Strong Southwest Mid Week, Northwest too
Pretty strong southwest/south swell inbound this week. Starting late Wednesday - with long period forerunners in the 18-22 sec band. By Thursday and Friday - spots with good exposure to the south will see solid size - head high plus. At the same time - we have overlapping mid period swells from the northwest due - which will cross up dominate southern energy and make the beach breaks pretty peaky. Fog, onshore winds continue to be the rule - but mornings have been pretty clean and some spots this past weekend were glassy most of the day. The weather trend looks to continue that way most of the week - with maybe the lightest winds this week on Thurs/Fri with the incoming swells. Models had hinted at an offshore wind event next weekend as we're into September - but have backed off that and continue to the trend of generally gloomy conditions at the coast - warm inland. Cya in the water.
