* WINDS (Today)...Southeast 15 to 20 kt with gusts to 25 kt.
  Isolated gusts to 30 kt.

* WINDS (Tonight and Thursday)...South 25 to 30 kt with gusts to
  40 kt

* SEAS (Today)...10 ft with a dominant period around 13 to 14
  seconds.

* SEAS (Tonight and Thursday)...12 to 15 ft with a dominant
  period around 13 to 14 seconds.

.PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

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

A Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas means that waves are
expected to be hazardous to small craft. Mariners should avoid
shoaling areas. Long period swell can sharpen into large breaking
waves in shoaling areas. It is not unusual for waves to break
much farther from shoaling areas than is normally experienced.
Remember, breaking waves can easily capsize even larger vessels.

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.

shoaling areas. Long period swell can sharpen into large breaking
waves in shoaling areas. It is not unusual for waves to break
much farther from shoaling areas than is normally experienced.

* AIR QUALITY...Strong inversions near the surface and stagnant
  air conditions continue to trap pollutants.

* TIMING...Poor air quality until at least Thursday mid day.

* IMPACTS...Poor air quality may cause issues for people with
  respiratory problems.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

An Air Stagnation Advisory indicates that due to limited movement
of an air mass across the advisory area...pollution has the
potential to increase to unhealthy levels. Persons with
respiratory illness should follow their physicians advice for
dealing with high levels of air pollution.

State air quality agencies highly recommend that no outdoor
burning occur and that residential wood burning devices be
limited as much as possible. According to state air quality
agencies...prolonged periods of stagnant air can hold pollutants
close to the ground...where people live and breathe. Check with
your local burn agency for any current restrictions in your area.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

An Air Stagnation Advisory indicates that due to limited movement
of an air mass across the advisory area...pollution has the
potential to increase to unhealthy levels. Persons with
respiratory illness should follow their physicians advice for
dealing with high levels of air pollution.

State air quality agencies highly recommend that no outdoor
burning occur and that residential wood burning devices be
limited as much as possible. According to state air quality
agencies...prolonged periods of stagnant air can hold pollutants
close to the ground...where people live and breathe. Check with
your local burn agency for any current restrictions in your area.
