...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY FOR WINDS REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 3 AM
PST MONDAY...
...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY FOR HAZARDOUS SEAS REMAINS IN EFFECT
UNTIL 6 AM PST TUESDAY...

* WINDS...West to southwest 15 to 25 knots with gusts to 30 knots
  through early evening then West to Northwest 15 to 20 knots with
  gusts to 25 knots.

* SEAS...Around 13 feet building to the upper teens this
  evening. Seas likely to remain above 13 ft through Monday
  night.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Small Craft Advisory for wind means that wind speeds of 21 to
33 knots are expected. Inexperienced mariners, especially those
operating smaller vessels should avoid navigating in these
conditions.

A Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas means that waves are
expected to be hazardous to small craft. Mariners should avoid
shoaling areas. Long period swell can sharpen into large breaking
waves in shoaling areas. It is not unusual for waves to break
much farther from shoaling areas than is normally experienced.
Remember, breaking waves can easily capsize even larger vessels.
