...WATERSPOUTS POSSIBLE ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS THIS  
AFTERNOON...  
 
CONDITIONS REMAIN FAVORABLE TO PRODUCE THUNDERSTORMS AND STRONG  
SHOWERS THIS AFTERNOON. ADDITIONALLY...THERE IS A NOTABLE THREAT  
FOR WATERSPOUTS TO DEVELOP. MULTIPLE CELLS ACROSS THE NORTHERN  
OREGON AND SOUTHERN WASHINGTON WATERS HAVE SHOWN ROTATION WHICH  
COULD PRODUCE WATERSPOUTS IF CONDITIONS ALIGN.  
 
WATERSPOUTS CAN EASILY OVERTURN BOATS AND CREATE LOCALLY  
HAZARDOUS SEAS. IF VESSELS ENCOUNTER A WATERSPOUT...THEY COULD BE  
DAMAGED FROM BRIEF HIGHER WINDS AND SUDDENLY HIGHER WAVES.  
 
MARINERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO MAINTAIN AWARENESS OF SURROUNDING  
CONDITIONS AND RELAY REPORTS OF WATERSPOUTS TO THE UNITED STATES  
COAST GUARD. ALSO...CONTINUE TO MONITOR NOAA WEATHER RADIO SHOULD  
ADDITIONAL STATEMENTS BE ISSUED REGARDING THIS THREAT.
