Big Offshore Wind Event

Looks like solid surf through the week - with overhead to well overhead waves at north facing breaks forecast as back to back to back northwest swells keep the energy going.  The big news is going to be the wind - for a few days now NOAA has been forecasting a super strong wind event which is due to start during the day on Wednesday and last through Thursday night.  This is due to a weather system dropping into the Great Basin while as the same time high pressure builds in along the coast.  Could see winds in the coastal gaps as high as 50kts and spots like Mt Tam, Diablo etc could see gusts as high as 80kts.  So look for some hefty paddling into the face of waves with all that wind.  Cya in the water.
