...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IN EFFECT THROUGH THURSDAY EVENING...
Synopsis: Strong winds and steep wind-driven seas will continue today as a thermal trough remains oriented along the coast. Expect the thermal trough to weaken Friday as an upper trough approaches. This system will bring a front through the northern waters, which could bring precipitation off the coast of Coos Bay to Reedsport, but more likely will be farther north. High pressure aloft will build this weekend, bringing a return of a strong surface thermal trough and strong north winds with steep seas early next week.
