UPDATED FORECAST - EASTER WEEKEND
With this past week's storms Nor Cal just broke the all time wettest season on record surpassing 1982-83 (which was a strong El Nino event). The eight station recording index now shows a cumulative total of over 90 inches of rain for the year. Surf wise, not bad to start today, winds are light northeast and surf is overhead at west/north facing breaks. North swell is 5-7ft at 10 sec, very small background SSW swell in the water too - but mostly lost under the northern energy. There is a new northwest swell filling in today - deepwater should stay in the 6-7ft at 14 sec range. Winds will turn south overnight as the first in a series of weaker storm systems comes ashore bringing more rain. Easter Sunday should feature south winds - swell 4-6ft at 15 with rain becoming likely during the day. Two more systems slated to come through until next Wednesday, then high pressure will build once again. Winds don't look that heavy for the first part of the week - fluctuating between south and west as systems come and go. Check the winds and you'll probably find a spot to ride. Swell will stay in the small to medium size range through the period. Cya in the water.
