Offshore storm winding up, east wind all day
Small and clean with gentle east winds all day. Surf will stay small through morning/mid day Thursday - then things should start to come up late PM. SE Papa Buoy is showing 21 ft at 9 seconds with winds at 35kts gusting to 43kts - that will generate large short period swell. Given the proximity of the storm - only 600 miles or so offshore - this upcoming event won't feature long periods - everything will be in the short to mid range. Friday could be pretty epic - 6-10 ft deepwater with more east winds forecast. Saturday should be good as well, as the swell drops out fast. Rain chances have been downgraded for Thursday, but likely see some rain on Friday - especially near the coast. Weekend right now looks cool and dry. Plenty of surf, check the winds. Cya in the water.
