NW winds blowing hard and look to stay that way through the week. We're in a rex block pattern with deep low pressure in the Gulf of AK - and high pressure just off BC. By the weekend - a very deep and unseasonable low pressure system is forecast to drop right over Nor Cal - still unsure how much precip is going to arrive with this system - but the potential is there for some very light rain. However, more interesting will be the swell that develops with this system that should start to arrive around Sunday/Monday and continue for a few days. I'll get the size dialed in on that one later in the week. We have some decent background south in the water through the period. But it's going to take a proper ass beating coming up the coast against the NW wind. Very unusual September we have going. By now the flow normally changes in the lower levels to offshore - but not seeing anything resembling a pattern change yet. But the season is changing for sure with the Autumn Equinox just a few days away. Find shelter from the winds for the next 4-5 days and you might find something to ride. Cya in the water.
