Small Craft Advisory, Gale Warning
Statement as of 8:12 AM EDT on October 22, 2014

...Small Craft Advisory now in effect until 7 PM EDT this evening... ...Gale Warning remains in effect from 7 PM this evening to 5 PM EDT Thursday...

The Small Craft Advisory is now in effect until 7 PM EDT this evening. A Gale Warning remains in effect from 7 PM this evening to 5 PM EDT Thursday.

* Winds: becoming northwest 20 to 25 knots with gusts to around 30 knots this afternoon through Thursday night. Gusts to around 35 knots expected from this evening through Thursday afternoon.

* Seas: 5 to 7 feet.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Gale Warning means winds of 34 to 47 knots are occurring or expected within the next 24 hours. Operating a vessel in gale conditions requires experience and properly equipped vessels. It is highly recommended that mariners without the proper experience seek safe Harbor prior to the onset of gale conditions.

A Small Craft Advisory means wind speeds of 25 to 33 knots and/or seas of 5 feet or greater over the coastal waters are expected to produce hazardous boating conditions to small craft. Inexperienced mariners...especially those operating smaller vessels...should avoid navigating in these conditions.

Mariners should pay close attention to the marine forecast...and consider wind and sea conditions in planning.
