Don't get me wrong. It is still cold out there. We saw frost crystals still on the ground at 11AM in Harvey West Park. Now, this is a spot that rarely sees the sun this time of year, but still, that is cold. The ground actually felt semi frozen there. But, with a little luck, we could be pushing 70F in some parts of town by next Wednesday. If that comes to pass, it will feel positively warm. I might just head to the beach. In the meantime, the surf is running fairly small, and fairly clean. Size should pick up later in the week, and we could see chest to head high surf through the weekend, with maybe a bigger pulse on Monday. With the calm, and warm, weather, it could make for some fun surf.
Next chance at a weather change looks to be late next week. If you have been reading this fall, you know my confidence in the mid and long term is very, but I thought I'd give this a mention, as it has shown on the models several runs in a row now. Basically, an Alaskan system could break through the high pressure, bringing another round of cold air and rain for late next week. Or not. Check back here to see how things start to pan out over the next few days.
