Outlook
Up some ---

The usual summer time pressure gradient over Cape Mendocino to continue generating north winds and local north windswell through the weekend into next week, but decreasing in intensity. A gale tracked through the Northern Gulf on Wed (4/22) producing 26 ft seas aimed at British Columbia. Sideband swell possible by Sun (4/26). Down south a small gale developed off the east coast of New Zealand on Tues (4/14) generating 32 ft seas pushing northward. Low odds for small swell to result 4/25-26 and buried in windswell.  The models suggest a small gale in the Southeast Pacific on Fri-Sat (4/25) with 36 ft seas aimed northeast. And a far stronger and broader storm to follow tracking from the Southwest Pacific east with seas to 56 ft aimed east-northeast. And yet more gale activity is forecast a week out under New Zealand. the pattern is looking hopeful.
