WIND WAVES ASSOCIATED WITH A SUSTAINED FRESH 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 8-9 FT SEAS FROM 05N TO 12N BETWEEN
101W AND 121W. AS TROPICAL DEPRESSION NINETEEN-E TRACKS W-NW...
THE AREA OF MONSOONAL FLOW WILL SHIFT NORTHWARD AND DECREASE IN

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 30N116W. THE TROUGHING
SUPPORTS A COLD FRONT EXTENDING FROM 32N117W SW TO 27N120W TO
26N130W TO 30N137W. WHILE THE COLD FRONT IS EXPECTED TO BECOME
DIFFUSE DURING THE NEXT 24 HOURS...NORTHERLY WINDS IN THE RANGE
OF 10 TO 20 KT ARE ACROSS THE NORTHERN WATERS...WITH SEAS
MAINTAINING 8 FT GENERALLY N OF 28N BETWEEN 120W AND 135W IN NW
SWELL. THE AREA OF SEAS IS EXPECTED TO SUBSIDE BY LATE THURSDAY.

LASTLY...WITH THE FRONTAL PASSAGE ACROSS THE NORTHERN AND
CENTRAL BAJA CALIFORNIA PENINSULA...N-NW WINDS WILL INCREASE TO
20 TO 25 KT BRIEFLY N OF 28N EARLY THURSDAY THROUGH LATE
