Active Storm Pattern, Plenty Of Swell
Cold storm has passed our area tonight. In it's wake we will probably see the coldest readings of the Fall tomorrow morning. Steep angled northwest swell came down with the storm (305 to 320) - in the 8-10ft range at 12-14 seconds. KING tides the next couple days with the largest tides of the season. We are in a very active storm pattern as the jetstream will likely guide storms our way every 36 hrs or so for the next week. In fact, weather models put us in an above normal precip pattern through the end of December. As they say, the devil is in the details - so just expect unsettled conditions with rain rolling through from time to time - with the next storm possible on Friday, then a strong system late Saturday into Sunday. Plenty of swell through the period - trick is going to be finding some place to ride and keeping an eye on the winds - which will be highly variable. You might just get some windows of opportunity. The North Pacific wave machine will certainly be pushing out swell. Cya in the water.
