Tropical Storm Daniel & Weekend Forecast
TS Daniel is moving into open water well south of Baja and into our swell window. He's a small storm, with 60kt winds gusting to 70kt. The storm will intensify just a bit before moving into cooler waters in the next 24 hrs. If we see swell from Daniel it will arrive mid to end of next week. We also have a sw swell filling in - 2.3 at 20 from 230. This swell was heavily shadowed by Tahiti on it's way north so expect long lulls. We also have a small north gulf swell at 3.0 @11 sec from 310. Winds still remain an issue at most breaks (except protected spots) - but lighter than they've been the past few days. High pressure over the Central US is moving West and expected to bring much warmer temps to our region through the weekend and into next week. However, cooler onshore air/wind may stay right along the immediate coast, so not sure it's going to be one of those events where we get some relief for some good surf days with no wind. But worth watching. Keep an eye on the winds and fog development and you might get lucky. cya in the water.
