It is amazing how detailed a forecast you can get on the Internet. The actual official “NOAA”:http://www.atmos.washington.edu/data/marine_report.html is reproduced by the University of Washington. (BTW this week, it is going to be not super nice. Showers and such for the inland waters of Western Washington.
“Weather Underground”:http://www.wunderground.com/MAR/PZ/133.html has a pretty version of the same forecast along with coastal temperatures, but the most useful thing is that you can look at all the offshore buoys and see the wind and waves there. For instance right now at buoy 46206 which is in the open ocean 45 nautical miles off the coast, the waves are 22 feet high! Wow, that’s why its nicer to be inland where we have one foot waves at “Wave Heights”:http://www.wunderground.com/MAR/PZ/133.html?map=wave#map
