No shadow for Punxsutawney Phil, so spring is around the corner. According to folklore, no shadow for Phil means “there will be an early spring.” Had Phil seen his shadow, it would have meant six more weeks of winter.
Light fog but no wind today and an early morning temp of 51F. High pressure system remains in the area and we will have sun later in the day and warm temps through the weekend. Excellent day to come to the beach and play - bring the groundhog! Off to a slow start this morning as new, long-period WNW groundswell starts to fill in. Should see fun sized surf as tide turns around and swell fills in during the day into the afternoon. Pre-cursor waves are starting to show up and buoys have it already. Surfers in the water at both spots and it should only get better over time and through the weekend.
CHANNEL: Thigh high corners off the Groin bar right and occasionally the Channel deeper bar left. Best on a longboard right now but a shortboarder is out there getting a few. Not consistent or filled in yet and tide continues to go low until 10:00am. A little time and more water will help as swell is a bit late arriving and will fill in throughout the day. Expect crowded conditons later and will be a nice beach day as well with lots of sand back on the beach.
PATCH: Inside rideable rights in the thigh high range. Also breaking way way outside which may be the start of the new NW swell. Surfers on longboards at both spots catching waves. Cruise along for a bit before they die out and watch the inside snags as the rocks are starting to expose. More water and more swell with give us better conditions later today.
