By: NWS

AS LOW PRESSURE RETREATS TO THE NE AND HIGH PRESSURE BEGINS TO BUILD IN FROM THE SW...THE STRONG PRESSURE GRADIENT IS EXPECTED TO GRADUALLY WEAKEN THROUGH THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. WINDS HAVE DROPPED INTO THE EXERCISE CAUTION RANGE...BUT SEAS AT THE OFFSHORE BUOYS ARE HOLDING AROUND 7 FT. WE PLAN TO LIMIT THE SCA TO JUST THE OFFSHORE LEGS AND GO WITH A SCEC HEADLINE NEARSHORE. THE ADVISORY WILL BE ABLE TO BE DROPPED WITH THE OVERNIGHT PACKAGE FOR THE OFFSHORE LEGS. WINDS AND SEAS WILL THEN REMAIN BELOW ADVISORY CRITERIA FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEK WITH GENERALLY W-NW FLOW BECOMING ONSHORE ON THU AND THEN REMAINING SO FOR THE REST OF THE FORECAST.
