Outlook
Up some ---

The local summer time Cape Mendocino pressure gradient is weak and expected to remain so into early next week producing only 15-20 kt north winds limited to the immediate Cape Mendocino area.  Tiny windswell for Central CA. Tropical Storm Lowell to push some fetch up in the entire CA swell window over the next 48 hrs. 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. The models suggest a new gale forming under New Zealand tracking northeast with 34 ft seas starting Mon (8/25). Small swell to hold us over till the Fall season starts.
