...SOUTH GALES POSSIBLE WITH A SERIES OF FRONTS BETWEEN WEDNESDAY
AND FRIDAY...

...VERY STEEP AND HAZARDOUS SEAS POSSIBLE WEDNESDAY INTO THE
WEEKEND...

A SERIES OF POTENTIALLY STRONG FRONTS IS EXPECTED TO AFFECT OUR
WATERS BETWEEN WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON AND FRIDAY EVENING. WHILE THE
DETAILS OF EACH SYSTEM ARE NOT CERTAIN AT THIS TIME, IT IS LIKELY
THAT AT LEAST ONE OF THESE FRONTS WILL PRODUCE SOUTH GALES OVER
THE WATERS.

FURTHERMORE, AS A PERSISTENT STORM TRACK DEVELOPS OVER THE
NORTHEAST PACIFIC, LARGE SWELL TRAINS WILL LIKELY DEVELOP AND
BRING PERIODS OF VERY STEEP SEAS TO THE AREA LATE NEXT WEEK INTO
THE WEEKEND. THIS WILL BE IN ADDITION TO ANY WIND WAVES PRODUCED
BY GALES.

CONFIDENCE IN A RETURN TO STORMY WEATHER IS HIGH, AND WHILE THE
PARTICULARS OF EACH SYSTEM ARE STILL UNCERTAIN, MARINERS MAKING
PLANS FOR MID TO LATE NEXT WEEK SHOULD BE AWARE OF THE POTENTIAL
FOR STRONG WINDS AND VERY STEEP, HAZARDOUS SEAS.

PLEASE STAY TUNED TO THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FOR FURTHER
UPDATES REGARDING THIS PERIOD OF POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS WEATHER.
