Week Ahead

Tuesday looks pretty damn fine with offshore winds forecast and fading northwest swell in the 4-7 ft (deepwater) range.  Swell will continue to fade Wednesday, but feature fun size waves at north facing breaks.  Weather through Wednesday looks cold in the mornings, clear skies, light winds AM.  By Thursday, next storm system drops down from BC/Gulf of AK - bringing rain late Thursday.  Then a chance of rain on and off through about Saturday.  This storm is going to get cut off from the jet stream (a cutoff low) and meander, and while it does that it's going to pump in swell for the 2nd half of the week - from various angles as the storm moves down the coast of California.  It's going to be close, so expect the swell periods to be short to mid.  Friday morning looks fun, with east winds forecast and a sizable mix of nw/w swell jumping back up in the 5-8 ft range (deepwater) - good for 1.5x at best facing north breaks.  So, plenty of swell all week - probably decent conditions on and off depending on location/wind direction.  Check it, know your spots and you'll find something to ride.  Cya in the water.
