Surf and Sun

April 18, 2002


Expect the same old, same old today. That is, early morning fog and

low clouds and possible drizzle, followed by partly cloudy skies. Highs

will be in the mid-60s, and lows will be in the high 50s.

The same old, same old will continue Friday and Saturday, but it

should warm up a bit Sunday.

The westerly winds will blow their typical 10 to 15 knots in the inner

waters this afternoon, with 2-foot waves and a west swell of 3 to 5 feet.

The winds will become lighter tonight.

Out farther, the northwesterly winds will blow 15 to 25 knots early,

but will increase to 20 to 30 knots late in the afternoon. The waves will

range from 2 to 4 feet, with a northwest swell of 6 to 9 feet. Tonight,

the winds will ease back to 15 to 25 knots.


Today will be similar to Wednesday, with waves in the knee- to

waist-range, with the occasional chest-high set. Size should increase a

tad Friday but will pick up even more Saturday.
