Small Craft Advisory, Gale Watch
Statement as of 3:58 AM EST on February 01, 2015

...Small Craft Advisory in effect from 4 am to 6 PM EST Monday... ...Gale watch in effect from Monday evening through late Monday night...

The National Weather Service in Wakefield has issued a Small Craft Advisory...which is in effect from 4 am to 6 PM EST Monday. A gale watch has also been issued. This gale watch is in effect from Monday evening through late Monday night.

* Winds: south to southwest 20 to 30 knots tonight through Monday...becoming northwest 25 to 35 knots with gusts up to 40 knots Monday night. Winds diminish to 20 to 30 knots Tuesday morning.

* Seas: 4 to 6 feet tonight...building to 6 to 10 feet late Monday through Monday night. Seas subside to 4 to 6 feet Tuesday morning.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

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.

A gale watch is issued when the risk of gale force winds of 34 to 47 knots has significantly increased...but the specific timing and/or location is still uncertain. It is intended to provide additional lead time for mariners who may wish to consider altering their plans.
