East Santa Barbara Channel from Pt. Conception to Pt. Mugu CA
including Santa Cruz Island-
Inner waters from Point Mugu to San Mateo Pt. CA including Santa
Catalina and Anacapa Islands-

...GUSTY SANTA ANA WINDS TO BRING CHOPPY SEAS TO THE INNER WATERS
SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY...

...HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS POSSIBLE FOR AVALON AND TWO HARBORS
SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY...

Gusty northeast winds and choppy seas will develop over the
coastal waters southeast of Point Conception late Saturday night
and continue through Sunday. Wind gusts up to 25 knots are
expected during the period. Isolated gusts up to 30 knots will be
possible as well.

These winds will especially affect nearshore areas from Ventura
to Santa Monica, including Santa Cruz and Anacapa Islands. These
winds will also move through the San Pedro Channel and impact most
of the unprotected front side of Santa Catalina Island, including
Avalon and Two Harbors.

The winds will create steep, choppy wind waves, with northeast
short period swell building up to 5 feet. The northeast swell and
wind waves will likely impact Avalon and Two Harbors, with the
worst conditions expected late Saturday night and Sunday morning.

This is a potentially hazardous situation for Avalon and Two
Harbors. Improperly anchored or moored vessels may become loose
and damaged, and may cause damage to other vessels in the
vicinity. Mariners who normally anchor in these harbors are urged
to move their vessels to the south side of Santa Catalina Island
before the hazardous conditions develop late Saturday night.
