High pressure off the California coast will continue to strengthen through the day resulting in increasing northwest winds, which will prevail through much of the upcoming weekend. Sustained gale force winds are expected along the Big Sur coast, south of Point Pinos, this afternoon and evening. Gale force winds will also be possible for the northern outer waters, north of Pigeon Point, Friday evening through Saturday morning. More details will be addressed in future updates. Steep fresh swell from strong winds will create hazardous seas into the weekend, particularly for operators of small crafts.
