Marine: Winds are S 5-10 knots this morning with seas 5-6 feet at 8 seconds. A weak trough over local waters will give way to building high pressure late today and remain through most of the week. This will bring a return to northerly winds. The winds may come close to the small craft advisory threshold during the afternoon and evening hours on Tuesday and Wednesday, but it looks very borderline. The high pressure weakens some late in the week. Seas to continue well below 10 feet for the next several days. * Full text of the latest marine forecast is available here.
