A ridge of high pressure will build over Bowie this afternoon and
move to Explorer tonight. This will support another round of

Westerly gales are also expected through Juan de Fuca Strait.

to track east into Tuesday. Southeasterly gales are expected over

from Tuesday afternoon over Dixon Entrance East and Hecate Strait. In
the wake of the trough, westerly gales are expected over Bowie and
Explorer.

Outflow winds are also expected through the mainland inlets on
Tuesday as stronger pressure gradient forms.
