National Marine Sanctuaries...

Increasing northwest winds over the waters today. Strongest winds
are expected along the Big Sur coast south of Point Sur. Winds
will remain elevated through mid week before diminishing. Seas
remain mixed as a longer period and larger northwest swell has
arrived along with a weaker southerly swell. The combination of
larger swell and stronger winds will result in hazardous seas
conditions over the waters through Wednesday, particularly for
smaller vessels. Seas will begin to subside on Wednesday.
