Outlook
Up some ---

The local summer time Cape Mendocino pressure gradient is weak and expected to remain so through  next week producing only 15-20 kt north winds limited to the immediate Cape Mendocino area.  Tiny windswell for Central CA. Hurricane Lowell peaked Thurs AM (8/21) with 65 kts winds aimed well to the north. Swell expected for all of CA Fri-Sun (8/24). Maybe more to follow too. Down south a gale developed south of New Zealand on Wed-Fri (8/15) with 38-40 ft seas tracking well to the northeast. Small southern hemi swell expected for the weekend (8/23). A weaker gale followed on Sat (8/16) with 34 ft seas tracking flat east from under New Zealand and mostly shadowed by Tahiti. Small swell by Tues (8/26). The models suggest 2 new gales forming under New Zealand tracking northeast with 30-34 ft seas Mon-Wed (8/27) and maybe higher seas from the second one on Thurs (8/28).
