SURFLINE XXL FORECAST UPDATE 1/16/2012


CALIFORNIA: Fairly slow this week; a larger series of swells will impact the west coast over the weekend and into early next week, although wind/weather is a major concern


HAWAII: No XXL swells on the radar

California

This work week will be slow with no significant swells on tap.

Going out a little further, we will see much larger surf develop over the weekend and into early next week for the West Coast; impacting the Pacific Northwest Saturday and into Sunday, Northern California Sunday/Monday and Southern California and Northern BajaMonday and into Tuesday if complex low pressure system behaves as currentlyforecast.

At this point the swell is looking significantly larger for the Pacific Northwest and Northern California, versus Southern California, with strong potential for XXL size surf in those regions. However, wind and weather conditions will also be of major concern as a number of onshore wind and rain events impact the region this weekend and into early next week. Southern California/Northern Baja looks cleaner, but will still see periods of onshore wind and rain.

We’ll have more concrete details on this run of swell, and weather, in Thursday’s update.

Hawaii

No XXL swells are currently on the radar.
