SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL CONTINUE AROUND THE BAYS
AND OVER THE COASTAL WATERS THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE DAY...
WITH HIGHER WINDS AND SEAS POSSIBLE IN AND NEAR THIS ACTIVITY.
LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WITHIN THIS ACTIVITY MAY ALSO REDUCE
VISIBILITIES. INCREASING MOISTURE LEVELS AND A SLOW MOVING UPPER
LEVEL DISTURBANCE DEVELOPING OVER THE AREA WILL INCREASE THE
COVERAGE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE COASTAL WATERS LATE
TONIGHT AND INTO TUESDAY. OTHERWISE... HIGH PRESSURE TO THE EAST
WILL HELP MAINTAIN MAINLY LIGHT ONSHORE WINDS THROUGHOUT THE
UPCOMING WEEK.
