Up some again ---

Swell from a low in the Gulf on Thurs (9/18) with 19-20 ft seas is in the water pushing south, arriving on Sun (9/21). A decent local storm is forecast for the Eastern Gulf on Mon-Tues (9/23) with up to 50 kt northwest winds and 30 ft seas targeting North and Central CA well. Fall is coming. Down south another storm is forecast tracking under New Zealand on Mon-Tues (9/23) with 41 ft seas aimed decently to the east-northeast. This system to fade but still hold together tracking across the entire South Pacific with 32 ft seas Wed-Fri (9/26) offering smaller but steady late season swell for days to follow if the models are correct. Something to monitor.
