As I anticipated two posts ago, the pressure configuration in the north Pacific is about to change.
The strong high that is generating the strong, gusty, ugly trade winds and at the same time blocking the formation of any ground swell (plenty windswell, though) is going to give way to a beautiful winter caliber low (the center reads 952!) and that is what we like over here.
This map is modeled for Nov 1.
This is the WW3 model output for Nov 3 and as you can see the swell will just starting hitting the islands. Oregon and California will get it even bigger.
Get ready everyone.
I saw this video on James' blog. Pretty scary stuff.
