.Synopsis for the Central California Coast and Bays Including

National Marine Sanctuaries...

Winds over the northern outer waters continue to be out of the
northwest and gusty, while lighter southerly winds are along the
immediate coastline. Sunday will bring breezier winds through the
Golden Gate and into the northern San Francisco Bay toward the
Delta on Thursday. These winds will generate steep fresh swells
resulting in locally hazardous seas, especially for smaller
vessels. Mixed seas will continue through the period with a short
period northwest swell and a longer period southerly swell.
