San Francisco Bay and Monterey Bay

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

Northwest winds will increase across the waters today as high
pressure builds inland. The strongest winds are expected along the
Big Sur coast south of Point Sur where gale force gusts are
forecast to develop. Occasional gale force gusts will also be
possible elsewhere across the waters late this afternoon and
evening. These winds will generate steep northwest waves
resulting in hazardous seas conditions, particularly for smaller
vessels. Winds will ease slightly on Wednesday but remain breezy
over the northern and outer waters most of the week. Seas remain
mainly wind driven with a lighter southerly swell.
