Issued: 9:56 PM EST Jan. 18, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas in effect until 6 PM
EST Thursday...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a Small
Craft Advisory for hazardous seas... which is in effect until 6 PM
EST Thursday.

* Seas... 3 to 5 feet.

* Locations... coastal waters adjacent to central and northern New
Jersey.

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.
