I've added two links in the Forecast Links section on the right of the page. NOAA Wavewatch III Model with NE Pacific animations and US West Coast. These are good models to view incoming swell trains. La Jolla Scrips server has been offline for over a week now - so I deleted NOR Cal Buoy link and Combined Pacific Buoy links from that site. I'll keep checking back and if they come online will add them back to the page.
Swell wise - fading northwest swell from earlier this week remains in the water today - about 5ft @11 seconds. New swell will start to show late tonight, north first and then be quite solid for Saturday. Look for deepwater swell to jump to 10ft at 15 seconds for Saturday. Swell direction 290-310. Swell will hold into Sunday and then begins to fade for Monday.
Winds are blowing northwest right now strongly over the outer waters, lighter near shore. Fog has returned to much of the Northern Coast of CA. High pressure hanging over us until about Sunday when the weather pattern begins to shift to a wet one - with rain starting late Sunday night very far north and making it's way to Marin/SF Bay by late Monday or Tuesday. Cya in the water.
