Updated Monday 1/25 Surf WX forecast for the last week in January 2021:
Monday 6am WFL Report: Dude, that was the best football game ever! So stoked… Congrats to everybody!!! Ok, the last time I looked at the WFL surf WX was Saturday and now 48hrs later things have changed a bit. And while waves are on the way it looks a bit notch down at this time. Low Pressure over Oklahoma will move east and bump against high pressure in the Atlantic. This will make for SSE winds in the middle gulf but the Eastern Gulf stays SE and not as strong so chances for a south swell tomorrow have gone down. Worth half a check with low expectations but it looks 1ft now, sorry. The front hits hard on Thursday with lots of wind, 25knts solid N wind and NW wind swell- waist to chest at best cold front spots but it quickly turns NE and Friday now looks like knee high cold leftovers instead of a solid clean up day like it looked Saturday, so those are the changes. Why? The waves now come from Pensacola with lots of N and by Friday not much is showing on the models but a small residual swell. What to do? Give it half a check later tomorrow to see how much south line there is and then focus on a solid cold front day of surf which is Thursday. That’s your best option for waves this week, Thursday esp PM. There will be waves all day Thursday and winds will be gusty but N and then NNE so Thursday PM could be good. Direction is NW to NNW so cold front spots will be the call. Another look tomorrow, Locked in? Or changes? Check back.
Last week of January Surf WX Outlook:
Monday 1ft south wind waves PM.
Tuesday knee high at best south facers.
Wednesday Knee high at best south facers.
Thursday: Waist to chest high from the NW 25knt N winds clocking NNE at 20 PM.
