Outlook
Down some --- A gale built in the Gulf of Alaska Thurs-Fri (5/17) with 23 ft seas aimed east at the US West Coast with secondary fetch producing 22 ft seas on Sat (5/18). Swell is pushing east. And a stronger gale is to develop behind Sun-Mon (5/20) tracking east with 26 ft seas aimed east. Down south a small storm developed in the deep Southeast Pacific Sun (5/12) with 49 ft seas aimed mostly east. Sideband swell arrival expected on Mon (5/20). Another gale developed southeast of New Zealand Tues- Wed (5/15) with 49 ft seas aimed east. Maybe more sideband swell to result. Another gale is to build just southeast of New Zealand Sun-Wed (5/22) tracking east with 33-39 ft seas aimed northeast.
