...GALE WATCH IN EFFECT FROM LATE SATURDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY
AFTERNOON...
...HAZARDOUS SEAS WARNING IS CANCELLED...

The National Weather Service in Eureka has issued a Small Craft
Advisory, which is in effect until 3 AM PST Sunday. A Gale Watch
has also been issued. This Gale Watch is in effect from late
Saturday night through Sunday afternoon. The Hazardous Seas
Warning has been cancelled.

* WAVES...West 13 to 15 feet at 13 to 15 seconds tonight through
  early Sat morning subsiding to 9 to 11 ft by late Sat night and
  early Sun morning. Southerly wind waves and westerly swell will
  then combine forces through the day on Sun to produce seas
  around 15 to 20 ft that will persist into Sun night.

* WINDS...Southerly gusts from 35 to 45 kt expected on Sun.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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

A Gale Watch is issued when the risk of gale force winds of 34 to
47 knots has significantly increased, but the specific timing
and/or location is still uncertain. It is intended to provide
additional lead time for mariners who may wish to consider
altering their plans.
