Light SW winds with inconsistent 2-3ft leftovers
Freshening N/NW winds with a building groundswell to 3-5ft.
Difficult forecast due to the close proximity of a cut off low. A SW groundswell is expected to build from 3-5ft to 6-8ft during the day, but local winds are the key. Most likely scenario is light variable early tending E'ly then S/SW after lunch once the low passes, becoming strong and gusty later. Keep an eye on the surfcams.
Easing S/SW winds with solid SW swell from 6-8ft to 4-6ft.
