Gentle to moderate SW to W winds are expected across most of the
region, except for southerly winds between Ecuador and the
Galapagos Islands. Long period SW swell propagating into the
region, with seas to 7-9 ft range prevailing through Thursday
before subsiding to 4-6 ft by this weekend.

REMAINDER OF THE AREA...

The most recent scatterometer data indicate gentle to moderate
winds prevail over the forecast waters. Seas are in the 4-6 ft
