Winds will help generate large sea swells this weekend

Wind gusts up to 46 mph will help generate swells up to 10 feet this weekend, according to meteorologist John Lindsey.

The increasing northwesterly wind could also bring fog and cooler weather to the coastline this weekend.

Today and Wednesday winds are expected to be 28-38 mph before dipping to 13-24 mph on Thursday. But the wind is expected to pick up again, beginning Friday.

Meanwhile, temperatures in San Luis Obispo will be in the low- to mid-70s the next couple of days before dropping to the high 60s, according to PG&E’s weather service. On Thursday there’s a 50 percent chance of showers, according to the National Weather Service.

The high winds, combined with a storm from the Aleutian Islands will produce the rising swell, beginning Friday. According to Swellwatch, waves could be biggest – ten feet and up in spots – on Sunday.
