Series of Storms Moving Through

The swell jumped back up in the pre-dawn darkness showing 10.5' at 16 seconds NW. This was also the last, best time to get a few waves in decent conditions. By 1030 the offshores starting shifting to easterlies. By this afternoon frontal winds were steady out of the ESE crumbling the wave tops and making it seem even colder than the 49 degree air temperature.

The NWS is considering the issuance of a coastal flood alert based upon the midnight high tide and the persistent 12' to 15' westerly swell. But once again, storm related weather conditions could neuter the waves for surfing.

Me? I'm over the hill every morning through Saturday for the contract ratification meetings. Perhaps it's good timing? I won't have time to SUP and the weather's lousy. That's what I keep telling myself.
