...GALE WARNING IN EFFECT UNTIL MIDNIGHT PST TONIGHT...
...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IN EFFECT FROM MIDNIGHT TONIGHT TO 6 AM
PST MONDAY...

The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a Gale
Warning...which is in effect until midnight PST tonight. A Small
Craft Advisory has also been issued. This Small Craft Advisory is
in effect from midnight tonight to 6 AM PST Monday. The Small
Craft Advisory is no longer in effect.

* Wind...South to southwest 25 to 35 knots, easing to 15 to 30
  knots after midnight.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Gale Warning means winds of 34 to 47 knots are imminent or
occurring. Operating a vessel in gale conditions requires
experience and properly equipped vessels. It is highly
recommended that mariners without the proper experience seek safe
harbor prior to the onset of gale conditions.

A Small Craft Advisory means that wind speeds of 21 to 33 knots
are expected to produce hazardous wave conditions to small craft.
Inexperienced mariners, especially those operating smaller
vessels should avoid navigating in these conditions.
