Outlook
Up some maybe ---

No meaningful local north windswell is forecast. Down south a gale developed under New Zealand on Fri-Sat (9/12) producing 43 ft seas aimed east. Small swell arrived on Sun (9/20). A larger gale is traversing the South Pacific Sun-Tues (9/22) with up to 40 ft seas aimed east. Possible swell radiating northeast. Up north a gale is forming in the Western Gulf Mon-Thurs (9/24) producing 28 ft seas aimed southeast. And another is to follow in the far Northeastern Gulf Fri-Sat (9/26) producing up to 30 ft seas aimed east. So there's some hope.
