NM SE OF THE SOUTHERN TIP OF BAJA CALIFORNIA MOVING WNW AT 9 KT.
ESTIMATED MINIMUM CENTRAL PRESSURE IS 1003 MB. MAXIMUM SUSTAINED
WIND SPEED IS 30 KT WITH GUSTS TO 40 KT. SCATTERED MODERATE
CONVECTION IS FROM 16N TO 19N BETWEEN 104W AND 108W. ISOLATED
MODERATE CONVECTION IS ELSEWHERE FROM 15N TO 21N BETWEEN 103W
AND 108W. SEE LATEST NHC FORECAST/ADVISORY UNDER AWIPS/WMO

...INTERTROPICAL CONVERGENCE ZONE/MONSOON TROUGH...
THE MONSOON TROUGH EXTENDS FROM 08N78W TO 09N90W TO 14N100W THEN
RESUMES NEAR 15N109W TO 11N120W TO 10N140W. SCATTERED MODERATE

...DISCUSSION...
WIND WAVES ASSOCIATED WITH A SUSTAINED FRESH S TO SW MONSOONAL
FLOW S OF TROPICAL DEPRESSION NINETEEN-E ARE COMBINING WITH LONG
PERIOD CROSS-EQUATORIAL SW SWELL ALREADY IN PLACE ACROSS THE
REGION PRODUCING A BROAD AREA OF 8-10 FT SEAS GENERALLY FROM 05N
TO 15N BETWEEN 100W AND 120W. AS TROPICAL DEPRESSION NINETEEN-E
TRACKS W-NW...THE AREA OF MONSOONAL FLOW WILL SHIFT NORTHWARD
AND DECREASE IN AREAL COVERAGE THROUGH LATE FRIDAY.

OUTSIDE OF THE INFLUENCE OF TROPICAL DEPRESSION NINETEEN-E...
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY INDICATES A POSITIVELY TILTED MIDDLE TO
UPPER LEVEL TROUGH OVER THE WESTERN CONUS WITH A BASE OVER THE
NORTHERN BAJA CALIFORNIA PENINSULA NEAR 31N116W. REMNANTS OF A
NOW DIFFUSE COLD FRONT ARE ACROSS THE FAR NORTHERN WATERS WITH
RESIDUAL SWELL GENERATING SEAS OF 8 FT GENERALLY N OF 29N
BETWEEN 121W AND 130W IN NW SWELL. THE AREA OF SEAS IS EXPECTED
TO SUBSIDE BELOW ADVISORY CRITERIA BY LATE THURSDAY.

LASTLY...N-NW WINDS WILL INCREASE TO 20 TO 25 KT BRIEFLY N OF
28N EARLY THURSDAY THROUGH LATE THURSDAY IN THE GULF OF
CALIFORNIA AS HIGH PRESSURE BUILDS IN ACROSS THE NE WATERS AND
THE PRESSURE GRADIENT STRENGTHENS.
