12Z model data is in very good agreement throughout the forecast

with the current forecast and the 12Z model data. Will use the 10m
GFS through the forecast period with some edits.
A weak cold front will move through the waters Wed night through
Thu as an area of high pressure begins to build in from the east.
Another stronger cold front will approach the waters Thu through
Saturday introducing gales in the Washington/Oregon waters...but
on the whole...expect a bit quieter of a forecast than we have
had for the last few weeks.
