There were waves around today at lots of places and the water is still warm. But weirdly the places I checked were all unusually lightly crowded for a Sunday. Maybe it was the cloudy skies and cool air temps… dunno, particularly considering how under much less nice conditions yesterday there were a lot more people in the water.
The settings haven’t changed much over the daylight hours, but there is a distinctive downward tilt to the trends and the call for tomorrow on the models is for a slight decrease. So it might be a little smaller tomorrow, but if you found something today, first stop tomorrow should probably be there again.
Judging from the latest forecast, the water should stay unseasonably warm for another week.
Latest run of the models is still showing good prospects for Thr-Sat. So that’s a good thing!
