.SYNOPSIS FOR THE SOUTHERN OREGON COASTAL WATERS...North winds
and steep seas will create hazardous conditions for small craft
south of Port Orford this evening. Winds and seas should subside
as a weak front approaches Friday, then dissipates near the coast
late Friday night. A thermal trough will develop this weekend.
This will bring strong north winds, likely gale force, to areas
south of Cape Blanco, while areas farther north will have winds
and seas hazardous to small craft.
