4am significant buoy readings
No indication of southerly energy at the outer buoys. Surfline has a new long period swell rising all day (1f 15s at 8am and 2+f 14s tomorrow).
6.4ft @ 10s from 46° (NE)
5.9ft @ 11s from 22° (NNE)
Wind map at noon shows light/moderate trades.
North Pacific still shows the strong NNE fetch and a small windswell fetch.
South Pacific shows a beautiful big fetch in the Tasman Sea. The WW3 model on Surfline only shows a very low swell in a week. It'll be interesting to see what we get. I think it's gonna be inconsistent, but bigger than what they say.
