Issued: 2:53 PM CDT Jun. 17, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas in effect from 7 PM
this evening to 1 PM CDT Monday...

The National Weather Service in Brownsville has issued a Small
Craft Advisory for hazardous seas, which is in effect from 7 PM
this evening to 1 PM CDT Monday.

* Waves/seas... from 0 to 20 nautical miles... seas building from 6
to 8 feet. From 20 to 60 nautical miles... seas building from 7
to 9 feet with occasional seas as high as 10 feet possible.

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.
