Thursday 05/31/12 Report and Prediction

Report:  Clean conditions under NW winds, but very small SE lines… looking knee- to thigh-high locally.  Standout breaks, particularly those on south-facing shorelines, might be picking up a little more energy and size, but not a banger of a swell by any means.

Prediction: We might see a small up-tick in swell as the AM goes on and the tide fills back in.  Winds are modeled to stay light and variable between the N-NW and W through the day, but as the day heats up we could just as likely see a wind-shift to the SSE.

Extended Forecast: Onshore winds return for Friday, generating a new SE windswell.  The low looks like it will kick off the coast overnight Friday-Saturday, followed by offshore winds in its wake for Saturday AM, so it appears we should see some waves for early weekend.  As of right now it appears that offshore winds and some small background groundswell could continue into Sunday-Monday.
