Weekend looks offshore and larger swell arrives Sunday
Back to back WNW swells will arrive starting late Friday - through Monday. Should see some deepwater swell heights of 6-7ft late Friday - jumping up to 5-8ft Saturday - with bigger sets at northwest facing breaks. By Sunday - double to triple overhead sets common at northwest facing breaks - with larger sets at times. Could be offshore all day Saturday - for sure offshore Sunday morning. High pressure is locking down the region again - and looks to stay dry through Christmas. Right now we're running far below seasonal norms for rainfall and snow in the Sierra so it's a good time to remind everyone to conserve water. We have a couple more months of winter left so let's hope the pattern changes. In the meantime - just ideal surfing weather ahead. Both swell events from nw at 280-300+. cya in the water.
