...GUSTY SANTA ANA WINDS WILL BRING CHOPPY SEAS TO THE INNER 
WATERS THROUGH SUNDAY...
...HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS POSSIBLE FOR AVALON AND TWO HARBORS 
THROUGH SUNDAY...
Gusty northeast winds and choppy seas will develop over the 
coastal waters southeast of Point Conception late Saturday night 
through Sunday. Wind gusts up to 25 knots are expected during the
period, with isolated gusts up to 30 knots.
These winds will especially affect nearshore areas from Ventura 
to Santa Monica, including Santa Cruz and Anacapa Islands. Gusty
northeast winds and choppy seas up to 5 feet will move through 
the San Pedro Channel and affect most of the unprotected front 
side of Santa Catalina Island, including Avalon and Two Harbors.
This is a potentially hazardous situation for Avalon and Two
Harbors, and any other east facing anchorage in the Channel
Islands. Improperly anchored or moored vessels may become loose 
and damaged and may cause damage to other vessels in the vicinity.
Mariners who normally anchor in these harbors are urged to move 
their vessels to the south side of Santa Catalina Island before 
the hazardous conditions develop late tonight.
