Outlook
Up some ---

Residual swell from a variety of sources is to be fading through the early part of the week. Things to shift west with a broad but ill defined gale developing near the dateline Sun-Tues (1/18) producing 20-23 ft seas aimed east. Swell arrival on Fri (1/21). A stronger and broader system to follow supported by a 210 kt consolidated jetstream raging over the West Pacific pushing to a point north of Hawaii Tues-Fri (1/20) producing up to 39 ft seas aimed east. And a smaller one to follow lifting northeast from the dateline Fri-Sat (1/22) producing up to 36 ft seas aimed east. The pattern to possibly fade after that.
