After the rain was over, the effects of an early winter storm still lingered on Monday, Oct. 25 in the ocean. Tourists and locals enjoyed a sunny afternoon wave watching in Pacific Grove.

The storm brought much-needed rain to the region, with 2 inches in Monterey, 1.4 inches in Pacific Grove, and 5 inches in Big Sur—with 10 inches and more on some high peaks in the Santa Lucias—although it also brought damage to other regions of California, with reports of flooding and mudslides.

On Monday along the Pacific Grove coastline, large, unpredictable waves created  put on a show for those who stopped and watched while walking near Lovers Point. 

According to the National Weather Service, "A large west to northwest swell remains a concern today [Tuesday, Oct. 26]. Although swell heights and periods will gradually diminish today,  seas will be high enough to result in hazardous seas conditions  particularly for smaller vessels."
