Hurricane Marie looks impressive and her track looks even more impressive. If all goes as forecast, the middle to end of next week looks very promising for swell. I'd expect consistent, mid period, overhead south-southwest showing late in the week. But whatever. The weather. Expect more of the same the next few days. But, if Marie's forecasted track correct, she will begin to pull in, and tighten, as she moves into our weather window. Basically, pumping up our high pressure. As this happens, we could see less fog, warmer daytime highs, and lighter, to offshore, flow. Could be some nice weather, and with a little luck we could be up to the low 80s by Thursday. With tropical swell in the water to boot. Go have some fun. The pleasant weather could last through the holiday weekend, before we see a more typical summer time gradient develop over the Mendocino coastline. Time will tell. In the meantime expect improving weather as Marie moves further north and west.
