Starting Saturday, expect gusty wind along with passing showers as a strong ocean breeze develops. Gusts will create rough surf and a boating hazard that will last all weekend into next week. The breeze will keep morning temperatures in the upper 60s while afternoon highs stay just below 80 degrees.
