Gulf wind swell is 4-5 at 11 seconds from 315 - much bigger surf near Cape Mendo with surf 8-10 ft at 11-12 seconds. SW swell from Pacific Hurricane Jimena 3-4 ft at 11 seconds from 200. Northwest winds are already blowing onshore and will increase throughout the day. Gale warnings up far north, this will increase the wind swell over the next couple days. I don't see any real let up in the northwest winds through Labor Day right now. New long period southwest swell will move in Friday and Saturday and feature deepwater heights in the 3-4 ft range at 19-20 seconds. Swell will continue from Hurricane Jimena at around 3 ft 12 seconds. Protected spots will be best - need to get out the wind. Water temps up near Bodega have dropped back to the mid 50s. Still warmer around SF at 60 deg. That will change by the end of the weekend, dropping some. Cya in the water.
