Marine Weather Discussion for N Pacific Ocean
NWS Ocean Prediction Center Washington DC
138 AM PST Thu Feb 21 2019

.FORECAST DISCUSSION...Major features/winds/seas/significant 
.weather for the North Pacific N of 30N and E of 150W.

High pressure will remain to the west of the region as a coastal
trough strengthens along the California coast in the short term.
Pressure gradient will become tight and that will generate gale 
force winds over the central waters. High pressure will weaken to
the west and allow pressure gradient to relax and winds to 
diminish to below gale force in the extended period. Latest NCEP 
weather map has a cold front across the central California waters
with high pressure 1036 MB centered near 43N145W. Pressure 
gradient is fairly relaxed. The front will weaken and dissipate 
as a coastal trough develops along the California coast. 
 
In the upper levels at 500 MB, models show significant energy 
along the coast while a strong high pressure ridge lies just west
of the region. In the short term, the ridge will shift east and 
that will support a surface high pressure to remain to the west 
of the forecast waters. The ridge will then weaken and relax the 
pressure gradient. Global models have initialized well the latest
surface synoptic observations and they all agree well high
pressure to the west of the region. Will stay with GFS for winds.  

.SEAS...are relatively large over the northern waters with a peak
at 17 ft. Seas range between 12 and 15 ft over the northern half
and they range between 7 and 12 ft over the rest of the waters.
NWW3 fits well the observed seas pattern and is also very close
to ECMWFWAVE model. Both wave models have a general agreement in
the short term on keeping large seas over the northern waters
then spread into the central waters. Will stay with NWW3 for
seas. 


.EXTRATROPICAL STORM SURGE GUIDANCE...n/a.
