Though it won't be as beautiful as Monday, the sun will still shine
and the highs will still reach the low 70s. But clouds will also hang
around. Really, it'll still feel as though we've hit the mid-70s, which
will be great for early January.
Tonight, expect lows in the low 50s. While Wednesday's looking
slightly cooler, the slight heat wave will resume Thursday.

While the westerly winds blow their typical 10 to 15 knots in the
inner waters today, with 2-foot waves, the swell should be carefully
monitored. It appears a small-craft advisory will go into effect. The
west swell will begin at 8 to 10 feet early, but the combined seas will
increase to 12 to 14 feet later in the day. Fog, too, may developer late
Out farther, areas of fog will be encountered early. Meanwhile, the
northwesterly winds will blow 10 to 20 knots, but the combined seas will
be about 13 to 16 feet. Later, the northwesterly wind will blow stronger
at 15 to 20 knots, and the seas will build to 16 to 18 feet. Fog will
develop again late.
The latest northwest swell will begin filling today and should bring
in some good chest- to head-high waves. At the standout spots, overheads
should be the norm. The swell will peak Wednesday, making for even larger
surf, so if you're going to surf this week, that'll be the time to do it.
