.SYNOPSIS...

Increasing southerly winds ahead of a cold front moving across our
area will result in advisory level conditions on Monday, with
winds exceeding 20 kts and choppy seas. Winds and seas will
subside a bit on Monday night and Tuesday, but small craft
operators should still exercise caution under brisk northwesterly
winds. Advisory level conditions could return on Tuesday night as
a second cold front moves across our marine zones, with winds and
seas gradually decreasing from Wednesday through late week.
