Areas of dense fog are expected over the coastal waters in the night
through morning hours through early next week. Mariners should be
prepared for abrupt visibility changes down to one nautical mile
or less. Reduce speeds and be on the lookout for exposed rocks and
other vessels, including large ships in the shipping lanes. Use
radar or GPS navigation if available, and consider remaining in
harbor if such equipment is unavailable.

In addition, remnant upper-level moisture from Tropical Cyclone
Alberto will advance into Southern California and the adjacent
coastal waters this weekend and will bring a low chance (10 to 15
percent) of thunderstorms across the waters sough of Pt

The best chance of thunderstorms will be tonight, though storms
cannot be ruled out as early as this afternoon or as late as
Sunday afternoon.

Any thunderstorms would be capable of producing dangerous cloud-
to-water lightning strikes, gusty winds, small hail, and brief
heavy rain. This is a highly uncertain situation, and those with
interests over the coastal waters are encouraged to closely
monitor the latest situation, and consider making alternative
plans if the chances for thunderstorms were to increase.
