Good to moderate for all reporting stations.

Weather Story: We enter an active period of weather through the holiday weekend. The system moving through tonight will bring widespread light to moderate rain and breezy conditions overnight. Cool, breezy conditions will prevail on Friday as we remain in northwest flow. The next disturbance will ride through early in the day on Saturday bringing a round or two of showers. Another, similar system will come through on Monday. High pressure will likely then build in for the remainder of the week and temperatures will head back upward.

Overnight: Light to moderate rain, tapering off after midnight. Then, becoming partly cloudy with a few sprinkles. Northwest winds could be gusty at times. Lows in the 40s.  

***GALE WARNING***
… for coastal waters from Point Pinos to Point Piedras Blancas out to 10nm from 3AM Friday until 3AM Saturday.

- Northwest winds 15 to 25 kt with gusts up to 40 kt expected.

Strong winds will cause hazardous seas which could capsize or damage vessels and reduce visibility.

Mariners should alter plans to avoid these hazardous conditions. Remain in port, seek safe harbor, alter course, and/or secure the vessel for severe conditions.


Friday: Partly cloudy, cool, and breezy with a few sprinkles possible, especially up in the hills. Highs in the 50s to around 60ºF.
