5am Surfline significant buoy readings and discussion.
1ft @ 12s from 210° (SSW)
1.4ft @ 16s from 206° (SSW)
1ft @ 12s from 183° (S)
4.1ft @ 13s from 339° (NNW)
New low long period energy is at the buoys. Below are the maps of Mar 3 through 5 that show the fetch that generated it. Honestly, I would have expected a bit more from it, but a couple of feet 15s is all we got.
Together with the windswell, that should give waves in the head to head and a third range.
Wind map at noon. The other ones can be found here (click on animation of the 10 meter column).
