A gale is forming Northern Gulf of Alaska Sat-Sun (9/27) producing up to 42 ft seas aimed east. Swell arrival on Tues (9/29). And another is to follow in the Central Gulf Mon-Tues (9/29) producing up to 31 ft seas aimed east. And yet another weak one is possible behind that north of Hawaii on Thurs (10/1) with 20 ft seas aimed east. The Gulf is opening for business. Down south a gale traversed the South Pacific Sun-Tues (9/22) producing up to 40 ft seas aimed east. Swell arrival on Mon-Tues (9/29). And yet another gale is forecast south of New Zealand Sun-Mon (9/28) producing up to 35 ft seas aimed north. So there is more surf coming.
