Synopsis for the E Pacific within 250 nm of Mexico
838 PM PDT Sun Jul 5 2020

.SYNOPSIS...A ridge will dominate the offshore forecast waters
of Baja California during the next several days producing mainly
gentle to moderate NW-N winds. Expect fresh southerly winds over
the northern Gulf of California early this week as the pressure
gradient tightens across the area. Northerly swell will impact
the waters off Baja California Norte early in the week. Looking
ahead to the middle and latter part of the week, winds and seas
may increase in the offshore forecast waters between Puerto 
Angel and Cabo Corrientes as low pressure south of the area 
develops and moves west-northwest, possibly as a tropical cyclone.
