Alameda maybe on Wednesday?

Postby jwest21 » Mon Jan 07, 2013 10:19 am

Looking like we might get some teens to twenties on Wednesday morning, with a chance of rain but looks like less moisture than the December storms we encountered.

Anybody planning to brave it out there in the cold? I've got no car now :( but any ride offers from SF will be met with beer and gas/toll offers.

If it's looking windy and not too wet I may give it a shot. Not leaving from SF though. IUYT

What estimated time do the festivities begin?

By noon it should be picking up.

Maybe next winter I'll finally return to some storm surfing after a 10+ year break and without the paddling. I ain't becoming no whitey dinner dragging around for my board.

It's, like, East-Coast cold this morning!

Tomorrow's forecast looks more promising: sunnier, and wind all day!

Sunnier? Yes… but warmer? No! Have your cake and eat it too– go both days!

Where are you guys getting your forecast? The Ikite computer models don't look good at all for today (Wednesday) or tomorrow at Alameda.
