Updated Forecast/Thursday Sept 24
Winds have been lighter than forecast near shore the past couple days - but still fairly strong over the outer waters and northern buoys. So worth a check if you have time. New mid period northwest swell is building in 4-5 ft at 11-13 seconds from 280 +. Still have wind swell in the water - (8-9 second energy) and a very small southwest swell in the 1-3ft range. Large area of low pressure circulating in the Gulf of AK - but all associated rain is moving into the Pac Northwest. That system is going to meander through the weekend and may continue to send us some mid period swell through the period. Winds, as a result, may be highly variable. So keep an eye on it - certainly some swell in the water. Cya in the water.
