Outlook
Holding ---

A gale developed off North Japan on Tues (4/8) with 26-28 ft seas. Maybe some sideband swell from that by Mon (4/14). Another weaker gale is developing off Japan Sat-Sun (4/13) with 24 ft seas targeting mainly Hawaii. After that the local CA pressure gradient is to take over resulting in north windswell and poor conditions north of Pt Conception. Down south a small gale developed in the Southeast Pacific on Sun-Mon (4/7) with 36 ft seas. Tiny sideband swell to push north arriving on Mon (4/14). Another gale is developing in the far Southeast Pacific Fri-Sat (4/12) with 34 ft seas aimed well to the north. Possible swell to result. No other swell producing weather systems forecast behind that.
