30 NM TO 45 NM ON EITHER SIDE OF THE LINE FROM 03N80W TO 
04N84W TO 05N86W TO 06N89W.  TO 09N BETWEEN 84W AND 86W.

...DISCUSSION...

A SURFACE RIDGE EXTENDS FROM A 1019 MB HIGH PRESSURE CENTER THAT 
IS NEAR 27N126W TO 18N110W. SEA HEIGHTS OF 6 TO 8 FEET ARE TO 
THE SOUTH OF THE RIDGE AS FAR AS 17N FROM 135W WESTWARD. THESE 
SEA HEIGHTS ARE RELATED TO THE REMNANTS OF T.D. 8-E. THESE 
CONDITIONS WILL SHIFT TO THE WEST OF 140W LATER TODAY. A SURFACE 
HIGH IS EXPECTED TO DEVELOP NEAR 28N125W TONIGHT WITH THE NW 
FLOW INCREASING TO 15-20 KT WITHIN 150 NM OF THE PACIFIC COAST 
OF THE BAJA CALIFORNIA PENINSULA. ASSOCIATED SEAS OF 4-6 FT 
TODAY WILL GRADUALLY BUILD TO 5-8 FT ON SAT AND CONTINUE THROUGH 
EARLY NEXT WEEK.

CROSS-EQUATORIAL SWELL WILL INCREASE SEAS TO 7-8 FT ACROSS THE  
TROPICS S OF 06N BETWEEN 95-130W TODAY AND CONTINUE N REACHING 
ALONG 10N ON SUN. 

GAP WINDS...                                                    
THE GULF OF PAPAGAYO STARTS WITH NE WINDS 20 TO 25 KNOTS AND 8 
FOOT SEA HEIGHTS FROM 09N TO 12N FROM 90W EASTWARD. THE WIND 
SPEEDS ARE 20 KNOTS OR LESS AFTER THE NEXT 6 HOURS OR SO...AND 
THE WIND SPEEDS DO NOT REACH THE 20 TO 25 KNOT RANGE FOR THE 
REST OF THE 48-HOUR FORECAST PERIOD. THE SEA HEIGHTS STAY AT 8 
FEET OR SO FOR THE NEXT 12 HOURS OR SO...BEFORE FALLING TO LESS 
THAN 8 FEET.
