.Synopsis for the Central California Coast and Bays Including
the Monterey Bay...Greater Farallones...and Cordell Bank
National Marine Sanctuaries...

Gusty northwest winds across the coastal waters this afternoon and
evening.  Strongest winds will be found near coastal jets and the
northern outer waters, where low end gale force gusts are
possible. As a result, hazardous seas with steep wave heights will
persist through early to mid week as the seas remain wind-
driven. Expect wave heights of 9 to 12 feet at 8 to 10 seconds in
the outer waters, which will slowly diminish throughout the week.
