Also, motorists should always visit ODOT’s TripCheck before hitting the road.
Marine: Winds are NNE 5-10 knots this morning with seas 3 feet at 6 seconds. Little change is expected in the overall weather pattern the next several days with persistent high pressure over the NE Pacific. This will maintain a northerly breeze with periods of gusty afternoon/evening winds, particularly over Central Coast waters. However, winds look to remain below 20 knots through the end of the week. Some doubt is creeping in about whether winds will reach Small Craft Advisory criteria this weekend or not. Seas remain below 10 feet through the forecast, but may be choppy at times. * 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 2-3 feet (low).
