Outlook
Down some --- Swell is hitting from the last in a series of small gales that developed under New Zealand. The third developed on Sat-Sun (9/1) with 41 ft seas, and the fourth was on Sun-Mon (9/2) with 44 ft seas, all progressively aimed more to the northeast. Up north a small gale is forecast developing in the Gulf of Alaska on Tues-Wed (9/11) with 18 ft seas aimed east targeting the US West Coast. A Fall-like pattern is trying to develop. But beyond no clearly defined swell producing weather systems are forecast either North or South.
