Northwest winds will gradually taper off overnight as a ridge
weakens and moves inland. Winds will increase and back to become
southwesterly later Sunday ahead of an arriving cold front. The
wave train that arrived earlier in the week continues to weaken,
however, hazardous conditions remain possible through the next
couple of days as wave heights align with the period. A new
northwest wave train arrives Sunday evening.
