Finally, after all these winter months and with spring a little more than a week away, the northern hemisphere jetstream is forming a winter-like pattern, placing a beeline course for storms to come out of the Western Pacific and travel unabated across the 35-40° latitudes (SoCal is around 33°).
This sets up an ideal NW swell scenario, as storms will finally have a chance to build as they progress out of the Western Pacific and throw more direct swell our way, yet stay just far enough north of our area to keep rain and brutal winds away from SoCal (operative word here being brutal, as some onshore-ness will occur).
