Synopsis: Light showers and perhaps, a few thunderstorms are expected this evening as a cold front moves through. Gusty north to northeast winds are expected behind the front with seas from 3 to 6 ft possible. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect from midnight Saturday through Saturday afternoon. As surface high pressure departs quickly to the east, however, a quick redevelopment of onshore flow will occur by early Monday. This onshore flow pattern will last well into the upcoming work week.
