Watches & Warnings

Gale Watch
Issued: 3:42 AM CST Jan. 20, 2017 – National Weather Service

... Dense fog advisory remains in effect until 9 am CST this
morning...
... Gale watch in effect from late Saturday night through Sunday
evening...

The National Weather Service in Houston/Galveston has issued a
gale watch... which is in effect from late Saturday night through
Sunday evening.

* Visibility... less than 1 mile overnight into this morning... with
patches of less than one quarter mile possible.

* Winds... sustained winds increasing Saturday night into
Sunday... up to 25 to 35 knots with frequent gale force gusts
expected.

* Seas... increasing late Saturday night into Sunday up to 4 to 6
feet with occasional seas up to 7 feet


Precautionary/preparedness actions...

Mariners should be prepared for sudden changes in visibility over
short distances. Reduce your speed and keep a lookout for other
vessels... buoys and breakwaters. Keep your navigation lights on.
Inexperienced mariners... especially those operating smaller craft
or not equipped with radar... should consider seeking safe Harbor.

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.
