Outlook
Up some ---

The local summer time pressure gradient is to start rebuilding slowly from this weekend over Central CA, then more vigorous early next week producing north winds at 25-30 kts but relocated over Cape Mendocino, fading late in the workweek. Windswell to fluctuate in accordance with gradient wind strength. Down south a weak gale developed south of New Zealand on Sat-Sun (8/24) with 26 ft seas. Small swell to result for the weekend (8/30). After that a primer gale developed Tues-Wed (8/27) in the Southwest Pacific with 32 ft seas.  Swell is in the water pushing northeast.  A far stronger one developed right behind in the Central South Pacific on Wed-Thurs (8/28) producing up to 48 ft seas aimed decently northeast. And a weaker system developed right behind on Sat (8/30) with 30 ft seas. The first semi-real southern hemi swell of the season looks likely, but with a fading swell pattern thereafter.
