MARINE SYNOPSIS: Winds increase this evening and tonight ahead of the next front.
Expect a fairly strong push of west/northwest winds behind the
front, with high end advisory strength winds over the coastal waters
tonight into Wednesday. A brief gale is expected in the Central and
Eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca late tonight into Wednesday morning.
Advisory level winds will spread into Puget Sound and portions of
the Northern Inland waters late tonight through Wednesday morning,
with advisory level winds persisting through the Central and Eastern
Strait, as well as Admiralty Inlet through Wednesday night. Winds
will ease, but building seas over the coastal waters will maintain
advisories longer with seas 10-13 ft through Thursday night.
After a bit of a lull in the winds, a much stronger system likely
approaches late Friday into Saturday, for much better chances for
gales across most waters as well as some potential for seas to build
to 15 feet or higher.
