Nice waves this week and even better waves on the way!

Hola!  Looks like we’ve got some fun and fairly consistent waves out front this week.  A little NW boosting size into the chest/should range for Wednesday and early Thursday.  That tapers off for the second half of Thursday and into the start of Friday.  Midday Friday we should see some west swell fill in and waves jump into the shoulder/HH range for most beaches thru the weekend with size about the same for Saturday and then steadily increasing for Sunday with more consistent HH surf for most of the day.  Even better it looks like late Sunday we’ll start to see another W swell fill in and wave size jumps again into the HH/OH range for Monday.  But I’ve saved the best for last…there’s a nice nugget of a storm that looks to throw some pretty good sized surf right into our window for Tuesday with size bumping up into the OH/DOH range for the day with DOH+ waves on the biggest sets.  This will be a quickie swell with size peaking midday Tuesday straight out of the west.  That means lots of big closeouts but the south and north facing breaks will see a bit more wrapping and hold the shape a little better.  Even though size drops for Wed we’re still looking at well overhead waves to kick off the day as the swell quickly tapers off through the day.  Then it looks like another hearty storm is brewing and should reach us late next week…ooooooooh yeh!  Stay tuned!

Weather wise we’re looking at pretty dense fog for the night and mornings thru the week and into the weekend.  Luckily that means light to no winds for the early morning sessions but tough conditions to see the waves. That should clear up by the time that doozy of a swell hits (Yay for photographers!).  Sunshine by mid/late-morning and air temps in the high 60s with nighttime lows in the high 40s/low 50s along the coast.  Northern Cal is about to get socked with rain but it looks like sunny skies for So Cal!  Tides are fairly extreme through the daylight hours with tonight’s full moon.  High mid-morning sucking out to a negative low tide by mid/late-afternoon.  Water temps are still pretty balmy for February though with low 60s all along the southern coast. 

Looks like we’re ramping up for more juicy swell!  Keep on paddling and stay wet So Cal!

Another North County 2010 throwback doozy!
