Updated Forecast, Cold Days Ahead
West/northwest mid period swell continues this morning at 7-9 ft at 11-12 seconds from 310. Winds are east nearshore, northwest at the offshore buoys. Water temps have been dropping for a few days now, hovering around 53. Those temps will likely drop a few more degrees as a very cold airmass from Alaska drops into Northern California starting tomorrow night. Slight chance of rain, snow down to 1500ft and northwest winds will be the rule through the weekend. We will continue to see moderate size waves from the northwest through the week - biggest Thursday and Friday when heights jump back up in the 6-10ft deepwater range. Smaller surf for Saturday and Sunday. Very large tides again the next few mornings so be aware of that if you're hitting it early. Find protection from the winds and you'll find waves. Cya in the water.
