MARINE WEATHER DISCUSSION FOR N PACIFIC OCEAN
NWS OCEAN PREDICTION CENTER WASHINGTON DC
115 PM PDT WED MAY 25 2016

.FORECAST DISCUSSION: MAJOR FEATURES/WINDS/SEAS/SIGNIFICANT
.WEATHER FOR THE NORTH PACIFIC N OF 30N AND E OF 150W.

12Z MODELS CONTINUE WITH GENERALLY GOOD AGREEMENT. SOME QUESTION
STILL REMAINS AS THE EXTENT AND TIMING OF THE GALES EXPECTED LATER
THIS WEEK INTO THIS WEEKEND. UKMET AND 10M GFS CONTINUE GALES
THROUGH SUN...BUT KEEP THEM MAINLY IN THE COASTAL ZONES LATE IN
THE WEEKEND. WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR THIS AS IT IS POSSIBLE THAT
THE GALES WILL EXTEND INTO THE OFFSHORE ZONES AS THE 30M GFS
SUGGESTS. BLENDED THE 30M AND 10M GFS TO KEEP GALES THU NIGHT
THROUGH SUN MORNING WITHOUT INCREASING THE EXTENT INTO THE
OFFSHORE ZONES. A SLOW WEAKENING TREND IS STILL EXPECTED THROUGH
THE END OF THE FORECAST PERIOD.

.SEAS...ENP HAS INITIALIZED WELL AND CONTINUES TO BE
REPRESENTATIVE OF EXPECTED CONDITIONS THROUGHOUT THE FORECAST.

.EXTRATROPICAL STORM SURGE GUIDANCE...N/A

.WARNINGS...PRELIMINARY.
