In Reply to: Tonight's Sea Divers trip to Santa Barbara Island Cancelled posted by Chris on January 07, 2005 at 13:22:21:

Only a gale warning? Still grounds to cancel, but
up north we had the first STORM warning (a notch
above gale warning) in the five years I've been
capturing the coastal and marine forecasts.

...STORM WARNING TODAY...
.TODAY...SE WINDS 35 TO 45 KT WITH GUSTS TO 55 KT...BECOMING S
TO SW AND DECREASING TO 20 TO 30 KT DURING THE AFTERNOON.
COMBINED SEAS 14 TO 18 FT WITH A DOMINANT PERIOD OF 8 SECONDS.
RAIN WITH ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS.

18' at 8 seconds? Terrifying!
