*Updated surfing forecast for Huntington Beach*


Forecast Overview

Lingering long-period pulses of SSW (190-200) and W-WNW (270-280) and easing windswell will be joined by peaking tropical swell from Hurricane Jimena on Tuesday.  This should help bump the surf up a little bit.  The eddy is looking weaker too, so a few of those southerly spots around OC and SD might not be looking so bumpy in the morning.

The Swell

Despite the windswell backing off, and the mix of SSW (190-200) and W-WNW (270-280) swells starting to weaken, the increase in tropical swell should mean a combined 2-4 feet of deepwater swell, with dominant energy being around 13-seconds from the SSW (200-210).

The Surf

Wave heights at standout summer spots should be running waist to head high Tuesday, while more average breaks are in the knee to chest high range.  A few of the better focal spots, and top summer spots have potential to see occassional set waves going head high+ to overhead.  Consistency should improve with the incoming tropical swell too.  The building tide and lighter winds in the morning should mean cleaner conditions.  There is a chance that a weak eddy could spin up.  It’s not supposed to be as bad as Sunday or Monday, but still could mean a little added texture for OC and SD and a couple other typically affected areas farther north.  Afternoon winds are supposed to be more W-SW onshore and will be adding texture and bumpiness to the surface like usual.

The Weather

Tuesday is looking a little cooler, with the trough of low pressure over the West Coast.  An increase in onshore flow should mean a deeper marine layer.  Lingering NW winds along the Central Coast could end up spinning up a little eddy Tuesday morning which will help add some coastal clouds as well.  Morning winds otherwise look light followed by the afternoon sea breeze out of the W-SW at 5 to 15 mph.

The Skinny

The lighter winds overall and less windswell should help improve conditions for a lot of areas.  Unfortunately for areas like Santa Barbara that are sheltered from the new SW swell energy, most spots are going to be very inconsistent and quite small.  That little bit of WNW still in the water could mean some fun little combo peaks for a few of the more magnetic spots.  If you live in a less shadowed area, you’re probably going to be stoked on the extra boost in swell.  It wont be a lot, but could really help with consistency through the day.
