Outlook
Up some maybe ---

A gale tracked east from Northwest Pacific pushing over the dateline to the North Gulf Sun-Tues (3/2) producing up to 40 ft seas aimed east then redeveloped in the Gulf Tues-Thurs (3/4) with 30-34 ft seas aimed southeast. Swell arrived on Thurs (3/4). And maybe another small gale to develop in the Gulf on Fri-Sun (3/7) with up to 35 ft seas aimed southeast, the slowly falling further into Tues (3/9) with seas in the 23-28 ft range. And another is forecast developing over the dateline pushing east Wed-Thurs (3/11) with 39 ft seas aimed east. So there's hope. Down south a small gale developed Wed-Thurs (2/25) in the far Southeast Pacific producing 34 ft seas aimed north. Small swell possible starting Fri (3/5). And another gale is forecast in the Southeast Pacific Sat-Sun (3/7) producing 39 ft seas aimed well northeast.
