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

The seabreeze will continue to weaken this evening, making way
for calm to light winds overnight across the coastal waters, along 
with isolated gusty winds over our outer waters northwest of
Point Reyes. A persistent pattern through this weekend and into
early next week will help to generate light to moderate seabreezes
each afternoon. These seabreezes will produce locally gusty west
to southwest winds from the Golden Gate gap towards Angel Island,
San Pablo Bay, and the Carquinez Strait during the day that will
gradually weaken overnight. Otherwise, a moderate southerly swell
will persist in the waters over the next few days as well.
