Southwest swell continues, off season WNW groundswell on the way

SW/SSW groundswell will continue (190-215) - keeping the surf up at south facing breaks through the weekend and into early next week.  Long period forerunners from a late season storm in the N Pac will begin to roll in Thursday.  Swell is from 290-300 and will build further Friday and hold through Saturday, fading out Sunday.  At it's peak, look for chest - head high sets with overhead sets at north facing breaks (which wont likely be rideable due to the NW winds).

Winds and water temps:  Water temps have plummeted back to the upper 40s - due to the ongoing gale force winds in our outer waters.  Winds are going to continue from the northwest through the holiday weekend.  Find protection from those winds and you'll find plenty of surf to ride for late May.  Cya in the water.
