Marine Weather Discussion for N Pacific Ocean
NWS Ocean Prediction Center Washington DC
1219 PM PST WED JAN 18 2017

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

The eastern Pacific continues to be very chaotic as a series of
shortwaves cross the region. The pattern will be progressive
throughout the period...which is causing some difficulty with
model agreement. Models continue to struggle to get a firm handle
on the timing and intensity of the individual systems. Will
continue to use the GFS throughout the forecast...but will cap the
winds on Sun night at 61 kt as the GFS seems to be a bit too
strong. The ECMWF does show 50 kt winds so feel very confident
that this will be a strong system...bordering on hurricane force.

.SEAS...Will continue using a 66/33 blend Wavewatch III/EMCWF WAM
to dampen the higher seas indicated by the Wavewatch III.
