Offshore and Coastal Forecast:

Synopsis: Areas of patchy dense sea fog will be possible through the morning, improving some after sunrise. Guidance indicating fog may be reluctant to completely lift however, so areas of patchy dense sea fog will remain a possibility until cold frontal passage by late Saturday evening and into the overnight hours. Moderate onshore flow is expected to continue prior to frontal passage, with an increase in shower and thunderstorm chances with the front itself. Moderate offshore flow then manifests behind the front through at least Sunday night into Monday. Winds lessen somewhat thereafter as surface high pressure slides further into the region and the pressure gradient relaxes.

South winds 15 to 20 knots. Seas 3 to 5 feet. Slight chance of showers in the afternoon.
