Today's Santa Anas to bring waves & rain this week
If you're looking for 20-25 ft. waves, you better at least head up to Point Conception or past Eureka for even higher ones. If 7-14 ft. waves are your style, then stay LA.
The surf will build throughout today and tonight, peaking Wednesday. By Thursday, the swell is expected to diminish into the 5- to 7-foot range, Seto said. A rainstorm from the Northwest is expected Thursday through Saturday, bringing more than an inch of rain, Seto said. [LA Times]
Despite the good surf, the combination of today's 15-25 mph winds and humidity drop are cause to be on alert for fire.
