Major Hurricane Sergio: The Forecast

Just days after Hurricane Rosa swept across Baja and the States' west coast, Hurricane Sergio is hot on her heels, now taking a northwest trajectory and could deliver pumping swell for that stretch.

Rosa was a bit of a curveball, some spots got good, very good in fact, while others failed to materialise. Now though, Sergio is currently around 850 miles southwest of the southern tip of Baja and it may intensify given it'll be in an environment of warm water and light shear. The east side of the storm has an elongated fetch – which should produce swell for SoCal and Baja.

Towards the end of the week and throughout the weekend, Sergio will track west and over cooler water, which could it weaken, though it may still maintain hurricane intensity.

Expect to see strong SE/SSE swell later on and over the weekend and southernmost Baja should get swell from today onwards. The swell may not be as big as from Rosa, but it's not far off with Sergio being slightly larger and stronger but also further out and the track not so favourable. Local wind may prove a bit tricky for some spots.
