Synopsis for the Central California Coast and Bays Including the Monterey Bay, Greater Farallones and Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuaries - PZZ500
Northwest winds will persist into tonight. Large west to northwest swell remains a concern through this evening even as wave heights and periods gradually subside. Hazardous seas are still expected as a result, particularly for smaller vessels. Large breaking waves will also still be possible across nearshore shoals and around harbor entrances. Seas will continue subsiding as we go into tomorrow.

Synopsis
Building high pressure kicks off a warming and drying trend Wednesday and Thursday. An approaching cold front late Friday brings cooler conditions over the weekend but the area looks to remain dry, at least until early next week.

As of 02:28pm PDT Wednesday... High pressure has been building all day, bringing mainly clear skies and light winds. This pattern will continue.nue into Thursday. With high pressure overhead there is a chance of some coastal low clouds or patchy fog, especially along the immediate coastline. Otherwise, look for more warming on Thursday, putting us a few degrees above normal.

The next shot at rain will be early next week as a front tries to sink in from the north. This will be a hard press to shunt the ridge out of the way. Ensemble members of the EC, GFS, and CMC are all indicating a mixed bag of possible precipitation for next week. All told, while chances are in the forecast, there remains uncertainty in the forecast. Next week essentially will be dominated by zonal flow that is more focused to the PacNW. The Bay Area will hope to see the tails of some of the fronts that are impacting our friends to the north. The Central Coast has a very little shot at seeing rain next week. Beyond next week models remain very unclear making for a low confidence forecast. However, the CPC 8-14 outlook is starting to paint wind and rain for NW California. This may sink into our North Bay area, but we'll have to wait and see.
