WNW Swell Filling in - bigger next week
Fun size WNW swell from former Typhoon Jelawat has been filling in all afternoon. Right now deepwater heights are 2.4 ft at 17 from 290 plus. Swell will peak tomorrow with overhead waves at the best north facing breaks. Swell will stick around until Wednesday, when new swell from former Typhoon Maliski charges in. Early forerunners will be on the rise next Tuesday with long periods 17-20 seconds from 295 to 305. Period will drop late next week Friday to Sunday. At north facing breaks this swell will feature overhead waves with double overhead sets possible as the swell fills in later in the week. Winds continue to look pretty good for the morning sessions (today was spectacular) - but we could see some unsettled weather start Monday night and last into Thursday. Weather models are now hinting at perhaps a stronger storm next weekend. All n all, looks like Fall around here. Cya in the water.
