.Synopsis for the Central California Coast and Bays Including

National Marine Sanctuaries...

Winds out of the northwest prevail with occasional gusts. A front
moving over the waters will provide a slight chance for showers,
mainly over the northern waters, early Wednesday morning. This
front will have increasing winds Tuesday night and into Wednesday
morning with stronger gusts, generating steep fresh swell that may
be hazardous for small craft vessels. These winds are expected to
continue through Thanksgiving. A large long period swell train
will arrive between early Wednesday morning and taper off by
Friday. Large surf is expected midday Wednesday into midday
Thursday and may lead to additional hazards for small craft
vessels.
