SATURDAY: Mid period W/WNW swell holds good energy in the morning, then fades, while some shorter period NW windswell and tiny SW-SSW swell blend in. Look for shoulder high to overhead waves to continue for the better winter exposures, while some of the south county magnets produce occasional sets up to a few feet overhead. Select breaks do a little better during favorable tides. Size is trending down in the afternoon.
WEATHER/WIND: Light to locally light-moderate offshore NE wind in the morning, giving way to a light to moderate westerly sea-breeze developing for the afternoon. Mostly clear/sunny skies.

Worst Bet: Onshore flow in the afternoon will create some texture for many areas. Cleanest for kelp protected spots. Going during the wrong tides. Smallest for summer breaks.
Fun W/WNW swell mix fades through the end of the weekend as a small SW-SSW swell mixes in. Another WNW swell lines up for early next week. Check out the Premium Forecast for all the details.
