Issued 4:00 PM PST 5 December 2016 Tonight and Tuesday At 4:00 p.m. PST today low located over southern Explorer.
By 10:00 p.m. PST tonight weakening low 1015 mb located west of
the Washington Coast.

Marine Weather Statement

Issued 3:36 PM PST 5 December 2016 A low pressure system over Southern Explorer is slowly moving
southward. Gale force northerly or northwesterly winds will continue
over the offshore waters tonight. The winds will ease overnight as
the low moves to Washington coast and weakens.

A quasi-stationary ridge of high pressure over the BC Interior in
combination with a low pressure system over the BC waters will
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 tonight and
Tuesday.
