Spring Weather Returns; Swell Fading

Fog and the infamous inversion layer began making a comeback yesterday (Sunday) with a vengeance. Surf webcams are useless this morning unless you like staring at a solid gray screen.

Still rehabing the hamstring, I took CloudyBoy our dog for a walk along the beach at Resorts. Fog began blowing in from the east on a very breezy and chilly wind late, around 4:30PM. By the time we'd walked down to the Trestle and back it had already filled in the mile distance, and was working it's way up the Bay.

Surf was stormy looking at about three to five with no surfable ramps, corners or shoulders that I could ever see.

NWS predicting bigtime winds starting up tomorrow. Already water temps are coming back down from a high of 55 to 52 at this writing. The big wind could kick up some wind swell to mix with the combo small south that's in the water, or it could just be a big mess. Currently even the dawn patrol has wind from the East, southeast.

CDIP: At 0500 PST - 4.6 feet at 12 seconds from 295 degrees and 1.5 feet at 17 seconds from 180 degrees
