Base page and URLs to Navy W3 data last updated: Saturday December 14, 2019 02:00 AM by JADELAARS.

This page was done by Chuck Tribolet, but all the data and pictures come from the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration, Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and the U.S. Navy and is excerpted from http://cdip.ucsd.edu/, and https://www.fnmoc.navy.mil/wxmap_cgi/..  If you would like to learn more about how to read this information, see http://www.garlic.com/~triblet/swell/Inet1XMP.html and http://www.garlic.com/~triblet/swell/UPSSwell.pdf.

I also have a North Coast Sea Conditions at a Glance page.

You can click on any of the thumbnails to go directly to the full-size version of that image.

This information should be used to decide whether to go to the ocean.  Conditions sometimes change unexpectedly, so you should study the conditions in person and check the latest weather reports before deciding whether to get into the water.

Be sure to check out the new animated images CDIP is producing: California Nowcast Model
