offshore waters today and tonight. The winds will ease overnight as
the low moves to Washington coast and weakens.

produce gale force outflow winds through the mainland inlets. Cold
temperatures from the strong Arctic outflow winds will give a risk of
moderate freezing spray through the mainland inlets overnight
