It hasn't rained in Northern California since December 24. SF set the record for the driest January since the City has been keep records - over 165 years. Ridge of high pressure has brought us superb surfing conditions over the past month. It does look like the ridge is finally going to yield towards the end of this week and bring badly needed rain to California. Especially from SF north. Until then, look for mid size surf - shoulder to head high Monday - new West swell comes in Tues/Wed pushing deepwater heights back up in the 6-8ft range both days - good for well overhead surf at top winter breaks. Thursday swell will drop some and then come up again on Friday (probably with strong south winds) as the storm door opens and a few systems come ashore. Conditions look potentially quite stormy by next Monday/Tuesday Feb 8-9. Next update wk of Feb 9th. Cya in the water.
