Tomorrow morning looks like it could be warm and windy but the direction is forecast to shift quickly. BWD calls for really strong SE at Centennial (dawn patrol) then quickly shifting to S and SW before going light in the afternoon.
Might be a morning for White Rock. The Jericho forecast suggests to me that Stearman Beach or Ambleside might work mid-morning too. Given the instability, I am inclined to just stay on the N Shore and see what happens near home, but I am curious what others plan to do.
If anyone is at a N Shore site tomorrow an OSR would be much appreciated!! I’d love to try somewhere like Irwin Park if I have company.

I think the BWD forecast hasn't updated since yesterday, so we will see how things look when it does. If it stays the same that could be a very sweet setup for BBay, a full on 3 hours with a nice switch to south at the end. :D

METAR/TAF not looking as good.

One of those very uncertain forecasts. Not a work day so as of present, my eye is on Centenial dawn patrol.

Metal/Taf is looking better with Se all morning but Gspot still shows an early nuclear hour then a quick switch to SW. I guess I’ll try Centennial early and hope the former is right

BWD still hasn't updated, if you look at G-Spot you can see the updated forecast. At 9 BWD is still showing 40 knots and G-Spot is now showing 20 knots. I think there are some issues with BWD as their site host has made some changes. Hope METAR/TAF is right.
