The 120 buoy has climbed from 6 feet at 10 seconds to 7.5 feet at 10 seconds at 5:50 PM today and I believe it will still hit around 8.5 feet some time after midnite. !

The waves in the morning will be in the head high range sometime tomorrow down south, maybe a foot overhead.  The winds are light 7 mph east to se.   It may even have an offshore breeze before daybreak from the land cooling off quicker than the ocean.  I’ll give it a 30% chance of that.  It’s not like someones gonna hold me accountable !

Size should be at least 6 inches bigger than this morning anyhow.

The two screenshots of the seaboard period chart are to show you how Sunday at 7am the water mass area of the swell had a more eratic wind pattern than the Monday morn 7 am chart shows.  It has some nice uniform bands of period color change.

My point,  I believe we may some more power, better pseudo-lines and longer workable walls Monday, even with the slight onshore winds than we had on Sunday (today).  It will probably be big and clean like Thursday morning but with a couple more feet in size than Thursday.
