|Mid winter view along West Cliff Drive.|
Nothing is certain, by any means, at this point, but we could sure use a little precipitation. The reservoirs around the state are looking good right now, but they will be expecting some snow pack melt come spring and summer. Right now the Sierra snowpack is looking a bit thin. More rain, means more snow. We need a good March to get back on track. But then again, March typically is a good wet month. But, then again, it has not been a typical year. Cold, and wet from mid October to the New Year. Cold and dry, then warm and dry, then just basically dry for nearly two months. So, time will tell. Still, keep in mind that by the later half of the next work week, we could be seeing a period of storms. And it is silly right now to talk about much beyond that. Just don't right off winter wet.
Big swell arrives today. Buoys are running in the 12 feet at 19 seconds range. West Cliff is getting some. Winds are pretty light. You should go get some. Or head up the coast to watch the big ones at Mavs this afternoon. Swell should stick around for the next few days, with light offshores in the mornings. A decent week for sure. Afternoon winds will be moderate from the NW. But, that is just the surf. The weather is what is really going off. Bottom line: Get out and enjoy the weather and don't miss out on Thursday through Saturday. It is going to be stellar.
