Thursday December 5th 8:20am: Waking up to small shin high lines this morning that are riding on this Southerly flow. This will continue through tomorrow before backing down towards the end of the weekend. No significant swell makers for the weekend, but the front that's on track for next Tues./Wed. looks to send a short lived N/NW swell to the West coast. Seems like there is plenty of arctic air ready to descend down from up North, but we need that high pressure out in the Atlantic to back off and open up the door. While the rest of the country is shivering, at least we'll be cozy warm hanging at the beach. Have a wonderful day! ---- TD Gulf Temp: 68°
