MARINE SYNOPSIS: High pressure will remain situated over the waters the
next several days, helping to maintain breezy northwesterly winds
over the coastal waters at times and diurnal westerly pushes down
the Strait of Juan de Fuca.
A strong westerly push is expected along the central and eastern
portions of the Strait again this evening- where a Gale Warning
remains posted. Winds in the western Strait look to become breezy
as well, so have maintained the Small Craft Advisory for this zone.
Additionally, will likely see the strong push of winds bleed over
into the adjacent Northern Inland Waters and Admiralty Inlet
waters tonight, so have maintained the Small Craft Advisories for
these areas as well. Northwesterlies will pick up across the
entirety of the coastal waters this evening, with sustained winds
generally persisting at 15-25 kt - Small Craft Advisories remain
in effect for these areas as well. Another strong push of westerly
winds looks likely along the Strait Tuesday night, so have issued
another Gale Watch with the afternoon forecast package. Additional
headlines will likely be in place over the next several days with
breezy winds over the area waters.
Current seas continue to hover between 3-5 ft and will build to
5- 7 ft tonight before peaking at 9-11 ft overnight into Tuesday
morning in the outer coastal waters. With seas dominated by short
period fresh swell throughout the week, can expect quite choppy
conditions at times. 14
