Breezy evening winds expected where coastal jets from south Pigeon Point and along the Big Sur coast south of Point Sur. Winds will briefly shift out of the south to southwest into Monday over much of the waters as a weak cold front moves through. Northwest winds will quickly return by Monday night and then increase into mid week. Seas remain mixed with a moderate west to northwest swell and a longer period southerly swell.
