PZZ650-655-271230-
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-
137 PM PST Thu Nov 26 2020

...DANGEROUS NORTHEAST WINDS AND STEEP SEAS LIKELY ACROSS PORTIONS
OF THE WATERS SOUTH OF POINT CONCEPTION TONIGHT INTO FRIDAY
MORNING...

Northeast winds of 20 to 30 knots with gusts to 35 knots will
affect portions of the inner coastal waters south of Point
Conception and the southern outer waters tonight into Friday
morning. The strongest winds will be from south of Ventura through
Orange County, including the Santa Monica Bay, eastern Channel
Islands, and Catalina Island.

These winds will generate dangerous, steep waves, peaking around
3 to 6 feet which will affect east and northeast facing harbors.
These include Avalon Harbor and Two Harbors. These harbors should
NOT be considered safe, and should be avoided if possible. Across
the southern outer waters, seas could reach 5 to 7 feet.

Conditions like this have a history of vessel damage and loss of
life. Mariners should avoid these areas, or remain in safe harbor
until conditions improve. Again, Avalon Harbor and Two Harbors
should NOT be considered safe harbor during this event. Keep
active dialog with the local harbor officials, and continue to
monitor the latest forecasts and conditions.
