Partly cloudy and warm with showers. Saturday a new swell arrives. Builds from 2-4' open coast, reaching a solid 4-6' by evening. Winds glassy to light S to start, puffing moderate S as the swell builds to 4' and goes strong into the evening. Partly cloudy and cool. Sunday swell holds at 4-6' altho winds a bit stiff and blustery, blowing fresh S, strong in arvi. Sunny and warm to hot. Monday the holiday looks middling to miffish, with 3ft surf and clean light SE winds in morning. Stiff S in arvi. Soft weak 10sec swell could be neither here nor there. Sunny and hot.
