...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 3 AM PST SUNDAY...
...GALE WATCH REMAINS IN EFFECT FROM LATE SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH
SUNDAY AFTERNOON...

* WAVES...West 13 to 15 feet at 13 to 15 seconds tonight through
  early Saturday morning. Then subsiding to 9 to 11 feet by late
  Saturday night and early Sunday morning. Southerly wind waves
  and westerly swell will then combine forces through the day on
  Sunday to produce seas around 15 to 20 feet that will persist
  into Sunday night.

* WINDS...Southerly gusts from 35 to 45 kt expected on Sunday.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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.

A Gale Watch is issued when the risk of gale force winds of 34 to
47 knots has significantly increased, but the specific timing
and/or location is still uncertain. It is intended to provide
additional lead time for mariners who may wish to consider
altering their plans.
