One look at local beach cams today tells it all - nw winds and victory at sea. At the height of the wind event late Sunday into Monday - water temps tumbled 4 degrees in about five hours. Winds will blow most of the day and probably start to let up overnight. But the damage is done with large, choppy windswell in the water and minor southwest swell. The rest of the week looks trashed - nw winds the entire time - best bet would be spots protected from the winds. Spring has arrived in Nor Cal. Cya in the water.
