Just checked the extended forecast for Friday the 21st so far looks like it should be a good day.Friday partly sunny. Winds from the WNW at 8 mph. High: 60° F RealFeel®: 59° F

Friday Night: Partly cloudy. Winds from the W at 4 mph. Low: 45° F RealFeel: 47° F

now this will change but I think for the best :up: Will nost likey be a little colder on the beach since the data comes form OC's airport but I'll take it.. :)

For the absolute best "forcast", check it AFTER the weekend.

I guarantee you it will change once or twice more in two days.

Heck, this morning they said it would be sunny here all day.

Well, it's overcast now.....

Now they're saying it will get cloudy....

Sure, ok.....

Like I said it will change. Down here on the shore wait 10 min. and the weather will change, wait another 10 min. and it will change again ( just something you live with down here ) I get the extended weather forecast at http://wwwa.accuweather.com hard to say how accurate it is but it's the best you will get. But the best thing is to look at the radar that will get just as close as the forecasters will IMOA

Well, here is hoping for sunny, warm weather with a slight S/E wind and lots of food. By the way, who is bringing the food? :?:

Sam, I was thinking about bringing my big steamer pot and gas tank and probably make chili,,,since there may be a chance it might be a little cool, chili may provide some heat

Weather forecast WAS steadily improving - then I check it this morning - and more wind, more rain :censored:

Here's hoping the forecasters are as wrong as they usually are....

AFTERNOON. SEAS 4 TO 5 FT. A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND TSTMS IN THE

A CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND TSTMS.

:D If you are looking to catch fish,,,we have the right conditions,,,my best day/night of fishing was with this exact wind speed/direction and weather as the long as the wind is blowing straight into the beach,,,so who knows, could be good,,,hopefully no grass,,,looks like the wind wont get bad until the middle of the night.

Thanks for the words of encouragement Coop - been looking forward to going down for so long, I was pretty discouraged. Don't have a lot of surf fishing experience, but in the freshwater world I've also had some of my best days in nasty weather. Staying optimistic!
