Locally generated north windswell early in the 5 day forecast, replaced by inconsistent small swell from what was Typhoon Dolphin for later in the workweek. Down south a gale developed in the extreme Southeast Pacific on Sat-Sun (5/16) producing 26-28 ft seas aimed due north.  Small south angled swell possible starting Sun (5/24). A gale developed under New Zealand on Sat (5/16) generating 34 ft seas aimed east. Swell arrival late Tues (5/26). And a stronger gale developed in the same place late on Sun (5/17) with up to 44 ft seas aimed east. Small southwest swell possible by Wed (5/27). A stronger storm is forecast southeast of New Zealand on Mon-Tues (5/26) with up to 46 ft seas aimed north. Something to monitor.
