A 1023mb high pressure was located about 700nm west of Monterey
Bay and will continue to strengthen today resulting in increasing
northwest winds, which will prevail through much of the upcoming
weekend. Sustained gale force winds are expected along the Big Sur
coast, south of Point Pinos, this afternoon and evening. Gale
force winds will also be possible for the northern outer waters,
north of Pigeon Point, Friday evening through Saturday morning.
More details will be addressed in future updates. Steep fresh
swell from the northwest winds will create hazardous seas into
the weekend, particularly for operators of small craft.
