Surf's Up. Or Coming Up.

There was a lot of excitement brewing about this one, with forecast of swell exceeding 13 feet at 18 seconds (which would push Mavs into the 30' range).  It is not expected to be that big, but open ocean swell should increase to over 8 feet by Thursday evening with long periods.  There will be some large waves along West Cliff at sunset tomorrow.  If you plan to get in the water tomorrow, be watchful for increasing set size.  All the usual caution.  And have fun.  This is looking like it is going to be a super fun swell with very clean conditions.  Wind will be blowing lightly off shore in the morning, and the air will be a crisp 50F.  It will warm into the mid 70s.  Looking like a lovely day.  Winds shift light out of the west in the afternoon.

Thursday will be the warmest in the week ahead.  Friday we stay in the 70s, but by the weekend, we will drop back down into the 60s.  The GFS still calls for a chance of rain on Sunday, and we will likely see the winds shift back out of the south and cloud cover increase.  But this is a quick shot at best, and we should return to sunny, autumnal weather by next Monday.  We will even see another warming trend through at least the middle of next week.
