Marine: Winds are light nearshore but blowing N 10 knots gusting 15 well offshore this morning with seas 4-5 feet at 9 seconds. Low-level flow turns more out of the north by mid-week and beyond, which will create potential small craft advisory wind speeds of 20-25 knots with gusts up to 30 knots in the afternoons and evenings. The strongest speeds will be over the waters off the Central Coast. Seas will remain in the 4-5 foot range for the next few days. Wave heights are forecast to reach around 8 feet mid- to late-next week due to persistent north winds. * Full text of the latest marine forecast is available here. And, make sure you check the latest Bar Reports before venturing offshore.
On the Beach… Becoming partly sunny, breezy, surf 3-4 feet (low).
