Generally nice conditions expected through Friday with lighter morning winds and small west to northwest swells. While northwest winds will blow over the outside waters, AM sessions like this morning should feature northeast to offshore winds, although a small change in the pressure gradient could bring the northwest winds closer to shore. Afternoons will for sure see an increase in winds. Swell should stay around 5-7ft through Saturday. The high pressure ridge will begin to break down by the weekend with rain returning to the north early in the weekend and through the Bay Area by Sunday. Longer range models continue to show a wet pattern returning for next week. So get these nice days while you can. As we are starting March, you can generally expect an uptick in northwest winds in general as we move through the month and the East Pacific high tries to establish itself for spring/summer. Remains to be seen when that happens and I think we could be in for a fairly wet spring given the winter we've had. Cya in the water.
