A gale warning is up through Sunday evening for west winds gusting to 40 knots, but that should knock down the swells to set up fishing conditions for Monday.
Sunday’s forecast starts with west winds at 20-25 knots that increase to 40 knots during the day. However, by Monday morning the forecast is for northwest winds at just 5-10 knots. There is a chance of snow — and then likely rain and snow in the afternoon.
