Friday 07/13/12 Report and Prediction

Report: In an interesting twist contrary to the sources available last night, we do indeed have light offshore winds this AM, grooming the windswell leftovers from yesterday.  It is on the small side, but standout breaks will likely hold some decent peaks and lines for an LB or small-wave board.  Low tide is approximately 9:30.

Forecast: We could see this small swell hold through the AM with the incoming tide push before getting swamped out in the afternoon.  Winds are predicted to go variable as the day goes on/heats up; they could maintain a SW-SSW tilt or go full-on SE; it all depends on just how hot it gets today and how much we are protected by cloud-cover.  Monitor sources of local weather for up to date wind information.

Extended Forecast:  Smaller/trace leftovers for early Saturday with offshore winds early, giving way to sideshore S-SSE.  It looks like we should see a small mid-period groundswell build overnight Saturday/Sunday into early next work-week, with the wind pattern characterized by offshore SW-WSW winds (with, of course, potential S-SSE winds in the afternoons).  As always, monitor sources of local weather for up to date wind information, and check back here mid/late weekend for an update.
