Synopsis: PZZ500-232215- 245 AM PDT Wed Jun 23 2021 .Synopsis for the Central California Coast and Bays Including the Monterey Bay...Greater Farallones...and Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuaries... Mixed seas across the marine interface with a continuation of light south/westsouthwest winds along our coastal waters today. These onshore winds will be the predominant coastal winds as a low continues to spin just outside of our outer waters. Winds will then gradually shift back out of the northwest starting tomorrow as the low falls apart, making way for a high pressure to fill in the void. This high will introduce more north/northwesterly winds along our waters, resulting in a moderate period northwest swell; this will become the predominant swell starting Thursday and continue through the weekend. $$
