Next Swell Lining Up

Fog and light onshores today as mid period west northwest swell continues.  Our next larger swell is currently showing at Papa Buoy at 13-15 ft at 12-14 seconds.  This swell will start to show late Monday, peaking Tuesday and Wednesday.  Should see double overhead sets at times both days.
Direction 285-300.  Swell will slowly fade late week.  We may see another run of northwest swell next weekend.  Tropical storm Paul, south of Cabo is forecast to become a hurricane late tonight.  South facing breaks could see a shot of SSE swell later in the week from Paul.  Winds at the coast remain a challenge to forecast.  Models are calling for warm temps inland and north winds starting Tuesday.  Winds could get quite strong over our outer waters.  Could see some offshore component to the wind by Wednesday.  A very active storm track is just to our north, slamming Oregon with rain.  This track is forecast to slowly dip south by about Friday, which will mean much cooler temps next weekend and perhaps some light precip.  So plenty of surf on tap the next seven days - just check the winds and you might find some surf windows.  cya in the water.
