Marine: Winds are N 10-15 knots this morning with seas 5 feet at 7 seconds. There will be little change in the weather pattern through Friday with high pressure over the NE Pacific and a thermal trough along the South Oregon coast. This will maintain north winds for the waters that will strengthen and become gusty in the afternoons and evenings. Wind gusts will again periodically flirt with small craft advisory criteria this afternoon and evening. Wind waves will increase in response to the gusty north winds in the afternoons, but overall seas will remain below 5 feet through Friday. A decaying front will weaken the high over the NE Pacific on Wednesday for lighter 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… Mostly sunny, breezy, surf 3-4 feet (low).
