The eastern edge of a very moist sub-tropical flow will overlap the
northern coastal waters through early this week. A warm frontal
boundary connected to this moist flow will approach the coastal
waters Monday and become nearly stationary while another warm front
to the southwest advances toward it and the Bay Area. By late week
into early next week a cold front will move southeastward over the
coastal waters. Seas are expected to remain light to moderate through
the first part of next week.
