Thursday 08/30/12 Report and Prediction

Report:  Still some small background-style mid-period swell in the water today, with offshore winds.  A bit swamped by a big AM tide at all but standout high-tide breaks, but it is starting to ebb, improving conditions elsewhere a bit.

Prediction:  Conditions will likely be best early afternoon after the tide turns and pushes things up a bit.  This is, of course, unless a warm-weather wind-shift to the S-SSE materializes (right now winds are predicted to be offshore all day, but with sunny conditions and highs near 80, it is possible we might be the recipient of afternoon side-shore conditions).  A bump-up in ESE background groundswell is anticipated for Friday, with winds looking to be dominated by an offshore wind-pattern.  As always, I recommend you monitor sources of local weather for up-to-date wind information.

Extended Forecast:  Similar swell for Saturday, but winds will likely come around sideshore-onshore.  SW-SSW winds on Sunday may greet a building groundswell.  Again, I recommend you monitor sources of local weather for up-to-date wind information.  Looking way ahead, increasing longer-period East groundswell is modeled for late-weekend into the early half of the work-week, but bad onshore/sideshore winds are predicted as well.  Check back for a mid/late-weekend update.
