Technical Marine Synopsis

Issued 4:00 AM PST 11 December 2016 Today Tonight and Monday At 4:00 a.m. PST today intensifying ridge located over BC interior.

At 4:00 a.m. PST today weakening low 1005 mb located off Vancouver
By 4:00 p.m. PST Monday dissipating low 1020 mb located off

Marine Weather Statement

Issued 3:58 AM PST 11 December 2016 An Arctic ridge of high pressure will remain over the British
Columbia Interior and will build strongly over the northern and
Central Interior today. Meanwhile, a weakening area of low pressure
will remain off the west coast of Vancouver Island.

The building Arctic high over the interior will cause intensifying
Arctic outflows over the northern and central portions of the coast
today. Gale force outflow winds through the mainland inlets will
strengthen to storm force today over the north and Central Coast.
Cold temperatures well below freezing will produce moderate freezing
spray through Douglas Channel and Portland Inlet.

The ridge will weaken on Monday, with the Arctic outflows easing back
to gale force.
