Outlook
Up more ---

A primer gale formed under New Zealand on Fri (7/5) with 26-27 ft seas aimed northeast roughing up the oceans surface in preparation for the stronger main gale that developed Sun-Tues (7/9) with seas building to 39 ft aimed well northeast. Swell arriving on Sun (7/14). The models keep teasing about another gale developing in the far Southeast Pacific a week out, but as we get closer to that time, the storm moves out further into the future.
