Good morning Divers!!!
First off, I want to wish Louis a Happy Birthday today. I just wish we were out diving.

Current scuba diving conditions in Laguna Beach. The County lifted the rain advisory yesterday morning, now IF we can get some favorable conditions. Surf right now is fair at 1-3+ feet but expected to increase today getting 3-5 feet later. News media is saying the surf will get up to 15 feet in some places with the incoming storm, although I don't think it will be like that in Laguna. Viz today should be around 10 feet, could be a bit better in places. Send me your dive reports if you head out today.

Our plans for Saturday. Well.... The forecast shows rain starting tomorrow and running through Monday of next week. We get rain this time of the year normally, so we have to stay patient, we'll get back into diving. Stay tuned for more.

FYI. I watched a program on NatGeo called "Sea of Hope - America's Underwater Treasures". Record that on your DVR, well worth watching and saving for non diver friends. Look it up, good program.

Diving!! DO IT!! Safely...
