The Eureka office of the National Weather Service has issued a small craft advisory along the coast due to a series of swells bringing 10 to 15 foot seas through Saturday night.

North winds of 6 to 17 mph with gusts up to nearly 30 mph are forecast from Cape Mendocino to Pt. Arena.

Those strong north winds are also expected to pick up “across all outer waters” Sunday afternoon into Monday, according to the NWS, prompting a gale watch for gusts up to 46 mph.

“Mariners should consider altering plans to avoid possible hazardous conditions. Remain in port, seek safe harbor, alter course, and/or secure the vessel for severe wind and seas,” the Marine Weather Message states.
