The winds usually build in the afternoon, especially in the warm months. This is due to the adiabatic phenomenon where the land warms and pulls in air from the cool water. I've started out from Neah Bay in a dead calm in the early morning and been in 30 knot winds by the time I reached Port Angeles several times.
