MARINE SYNOPSIS: A very weak upper level ridge will start to push onshore this evening as multiple existing headlines will expire. A Small Craft Advisory will remain for the Northern Inland Waters until early tonight, elsewhere expect a brief lull in activity this evening. A low pressure system spinning down from the north will enter into our area waters Friday morning. Southerly winds will increase bringing gale-force winds to all coastal water zones, so have upgraded the Gale Watch to a Gale Warning. This low will move southward, as it does, gradients will tighten within the Strait of Juan De Fuca. Have put out Small Craft Advisories for all portions of the Strait, but will have to be monitored as the potential for some gale-force winds within the Strait may be possible. Coastal seas within the 8 to 9 feet range this evening, but will build back up into the 12 to 14 feet range Friday into Saturday as the next system pushes through.
