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

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 overnight
