Outlook
Up some maybe ---

In the NPac a gale developed moving from the dateline tracking east into the Gulf Mon-Wed (10/16) with up to 41 ft seas aimed east. Swell #1 is on the way. Another to follow tracking from the dateline Thurs-Fri (10/17) with 34-36 ft seas aimed east with 26 ft seas in the Gulf on Sat (10/21). And maybe a strong extratropical storm to generate yet more seas behind that. A solid gale developed in the Central South Pacific Sun-Tues (10/10) with up to 38 ft seas aimed well north. South swell is hitting. Another small storm developed while tracking east under New Zealand on Sun (10/15) with up to 40 ft seas aimed northeast. And another developed on the eastern edge of the CA swell window Sat (10/14) with 36 ft seas aimed due north. Both swells are pushing towards CA but will likely be lost in strong North Pacific swell. The MJO has turned Active and is feeding the storm track.
