I'd say make the trip and think of it as recon for the next good swell. Some beaches are closed or have tough access with fencing and repair work going on. You may have to park some place different and walk a ways to your usual spots or find some place new. The beach has changed dramatically in some areas - but you might be pleasantly surprised by better sandbars and jettys. The wind is supposed to be strong offshore so catch the first incoming tide of the morning before it's blown out. There is a strong fast moving front coming through which is pretty reliable for strong south winds and south swell but it'll get beat down over the day.
