Synopsis for the E Pacific within 250 nm of Mexico
102 AM PDT Thu Apr 25 2024

.SYNOPSIS...SW fresh to strong winds, locally near-gale 
force, will pulse in the northern Gulf of California through the 
morning, and again Fri evening through early Sat morning. 
Starting today, high pressure across the East Pacific is going 
to strengthen. This will cause gentle to moderate northerly 
winds west of Baja California and near the Revillagigedo Islands 
to become fresh to locally strong along with building seas by 
Fri. The pressure gradient across the waters will weaken by the 
end of the weekend into early next week resulting in fairly 
tranquil conditions.
