Weekend Forecast...Early Spring?
Solid long period swell will fill in Saturday PM - expect surf heights back in the 8-12 ft range from 285 to 300. Buoys are 9ft at 14 from 310 this morning. North winds are going to be blowing behind the passing front that brought us meager amounts of rain yesterday and this morning. High pressure will once again regain control and stay that way for the next 7-10 days, if not longer. Storm systems are moving higher in the Gulf of Alaska, hence swells are coming in from a steeper angle. This is indicative of a transition to more of a spring pattern. Let's hope winter will still have something to say about that. North to northwest winds look like the rule, plenty of swell, but you'll need to find some protection to ride. Water temps hovering around 50, will likely drop below that over the next two days as winds blow on the outer waters. Especially from the Bay Area north. Cya in the water.
