A small craft advisory will be in effect starting at 11 p.m. today and a gale warning starting at 3 a.m. Monday for what are expected to be rough conditions off the coast.

The National Weather Service office in Eureka is forecasting that a cold front will make its way across coastal waters tonight with winds that will "abruptly strengthen out of the north."

The small craft advisory, which runs through 3 a.m., is followed by the gale warning, which cover areas from Point St. George to Cape Mendocino, with wind gusts picking up to 40 mph, including gusts of up to 50 mph, and seas at 10 to 15 feet.

"Strong winds will cause hazardous seas which could capsize or damage vessels and reduce visibility," the NWS warning states.
