Cool Temps and Windy Conditions to Start the Week

A through of low pressure is digging down over the Pacific Northwest. This cold air mass will drop temperatures inland 10 to 15 degrees below normal, and coastal locations 5 degrees below normal averages for this time of year. The trend will continue through Wednesday. Winds will also increase across the Central Coast, with a ridge to our east and trough to our west. The strongest winds expected Monday, while breezy/ gusty conditions will persist throughout the week.


- For the coastal waters from Point Pinos to Point Piedras Blancas California out to 10 nm.

- Northwest winds 20 to 30 kt with gusts up to 40 kt and seas 7 to 11 feet at 8 seconds 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.
