.Forecast discussion...Major features/winds/seas/significant .Weather for the North Pacific N of 30n and E of 150w.
The latest surface analysis indicates that high pressure west of the offshore waters continues to combine with a low pressure trof along the California coast to produce northerly winds up to 25 or 30 knots across portions of the northern and central pz6 waters. By Monday night the strongest conditions will be west of Point Arena with winds up to 30 knots in the offshore waters and some higher conditions possible in the coastal waters. By Tuesday night the strongest conditions will shift to off of Point Saint George, then begin to slowly weaken into Wednesday. From Wednesday night into Friday mainly light winds are expected across most of the offshore waters. Meanwhile, weak low pressure is expected to pass just north of the pz5 waters tonight and Monday. The latest runs of the GFS and ECMWF look to be in reasonable agreement across the eastern Pacific through Friday. For wind grids will continue to use the GFS 10m winds throughout. Current forecast looks reasonable and will continue to carry no warnings across the offshore waters during the forecast period.
For wave height grids will also continue to use the ww3 throughout the forecast period.
