Synopsis for the E Pacific within 250 nm of Mexico
140 PM PST Mon Jan 30 2023

.SYNOPSIS...A cold front will sweep southeastward across 
the Baja California Norte region enhancing winds and seas N of 
Punta Eugenia today and tonight. Fresh to strong NW winds behind 
the front are expected to surge S of 30N and to N of 28N between 
120W-124W by tonight, but should be brief in duration. Otherwise,
high pressure in the wake of the front will shift E along 30N 
through Thu, with winds diminishing and seas subsiding. The next 
Gulf of Tehuantepec gale force gap wind event is possible 
starting at the end of the week. This event is expected to be on 
the high range of gale force winds, with some chance of winds 
reaching storm force.
