GETTING WINDY AGAIN
You may have noticed the breeze picking up a little today. Peak gusts were between 18-23 mph. That will increase soon. Our next weather maker will be a combination of high pressure to our north and lower pressure to our south. The resulting pressure gradient (difference) will tighten with the wind forced to increase in between both weather systems. This means several days of rough surf, beach erosion and rip currents ahead.
Wednesday through Saturday sustained onshore winds will be 20-25 mph with gusts over 30 mph at times. Early next week we'll still be experiencing a modest breeze of 15-20 mph.
Seas on Wednesday will ramp up to 5-7 feet. Expect 7-9 foot seas Thursday and 6-8 feet on Friday.
Beach erosion will be an issue especially in normally prone areas to the South of piers, jetties and inlets.
The strong onshore wind will blow in plenty of ocean clouds with a few fly-by showers or sprinkles. However rain chances never go above 30%.
