.Synopsis for the Central California Coast and Bays Including
the Monterey Bay...Greater Farallones...and Cordell Bank
National Marine Sanctuaries...

A storm system currently off the British Colombia coast has
resulted in a split windflow pattern over the coastal waters,
where winds are out of the south for the northern waters and out
of north for the southern waters. Winds will eventually turn more
southerly or become calm over the southern coastal waters by
Monday morning. The associated cold front will stall off the
Northern California coast, which will keep winds southerly through
at least mid week, especially for the northern waters. These
southerly winds may become moderate to locally gusty over the
northern outer waters. Seas are expected to remain light to
moderate through the first part of next week.
