Small Craft for Hazardous Seas Advisory
Statement as of 10:22 AM EDT on April 17, 2014

...Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas remains in effect until 2 am EDT Friday...

A Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas remains in effect until 2 am EDT Friday.

* Seas: a mix of northeast swell and wind waves will remain at advisory levels into tonight...then once again over the weekend in the wake of the cold front...mainly across the Palm Beach waters.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas means that waves are expected to be hazardous to small craft. Mariners should avoid shoaling areas. Long period swell can sharpen into large breaking waves in shoaling areas. It is not unusual for waves to break much farther from shoaling areas than is normally experienced. Remember...breaking waves can easily capsize even larger vessels.
