*Updated surfing forecast for Huntington Beach*

MORE SW ENERGY FILLS IN, BRINGING A FEW MORE MODERATE SIZED WAVES TO BETTER EXPOSED SUMMER SPOTS
As the swell blend from the weekend eases a bit more, the new long-period energy that began building on Monday should continue its upward trek to dominant swelldom midweek. Also looks like an increase in onshore flow thanks to some low pressure off the coast could mean some extra westerly windswell Tuesday.
Leftover SW (215-225) that peaked over the weekend and new long-period energy from the same direction that arrived Monday should continue to fill in Tuesday. The angle is pretty wide, which isn’t great news for areas like North Orange County and of course parts of Santa Barbara and Ventura county. Still there are some areas of Southern California seeing some fun surf from this building swell mix. W winds in the outer waters are expected to generate a little extra local windswell too, which could be beneficial to those areas sheltered from the s.hemi swell.
Tuesday is going to continue to see mostly knee to chest high surf for a lot of the summer spots through Southern California. A few standouts that can pick up the building SW energy could see some bigger head high-head high+ sets through the day, especially on the better tides. Consistency and size continue to improve. The increase in onshore flow over the outer waters should mean a bump up in size for W-NW exposures. Standouts are expected to be running knee to waist high with occasional bigger sets at better exposures. Conditions will be lightest in the morning, but the breezier onshore winds in the afternoon will mean an increase textured and bumpiness along the exposed coast.
Low pressure to the west of Point Conception will mean more onshore flow and a deepening of the marine layer. The clouds should burn off to reveal sunny skies for most areas through the mornings. Winds are supposed to be light and variable/onshore overnight. Most places will see winds under 5 mph in the morning. Afternoons are looking breezier with most places in the 10 to 15 mph out of the W-SW, with gusts up to 25 mph for a few wind prone areas, and over the outer waters.
Still looking at playful surf Tuesday, with some really fun consistent size at the better SW exposures (mostly south OC and San Diego). There could be a little more textured at the W-NW exposures, but that also means some extra windswell for the combo breaks too. Basically should be plenty of surf, just not quite so big. Also, just a heads up, I’m on the road this week, and although I plan on updating forecasts and overviews they may be a bit on the short side. Luckily… there will be surf just about every day, and likely it will be getting progressively bigger…
