Synopsis: PZZ500-280915- 158 PM PDT Mon Sep 27 2021 .Synopsis for the Central California Coast and Bays Including the Monterey Bay...Greater Farallones...and Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuaries... South to southwest winds will continue ahead of a weak cold front moving through the coastal waters. Northwest winds will then quickly return by this evening in the wake of the frontal passage. Locally stronger winds are forecast to persist along the Big Sur coast south of Point Sur. Winds will then gradually strengthen later on Tuesday and remain elevated through mid to late week. Mixed seas remain with a moderate period northwest swell and a longer period southerly swell. An additional larger northwest swell will arrive tonight with seas quickly building into Tuesday. The combination of stronger winds and building swell will result in hazardous seas conditions, particularly for smaller vessels. Seas will begin to subside on Wednesday. $$
