Looks like that wind I warned people about in my Fantasy Fishing post earlier this week came a day early, postponing things for a day. So what impact will that have on the event, and what of the days to come?
The small craft advisory that was initially posted this morning will be lifted late afternoon/early evening Saturday. For those of you who aren't sure what a Small Craft Advisory is, here's the definition and advisory itself as stated at Weather Underground:
...Small Craft Advisory remains in effect from 8 am this morning to 3 PM EDT Saturday...
A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect from 8 am this morning to 3 PM EDT Saturday.
* Wind and waves during the small craft advisory: expect sustained winds of up to 25 knots from the south...with gusts up to 33 knots. The largest expected significant waves will be 8 feet with a maximum wave height of up to 11 feet possible.
* Timing: the maximum winds are expected around 4 PM EDT Friday with the largest waves expected around 11 PM EDT Friday.
Please see the latest marine forecasts for more detailed information.
A Small Craft Advisory means that wind speeds of 22 to 33 knots are expected to produce hazardous wave conditions to small craft. Inexperienced mariners...especially those operating smaller vessels should avoid navigating in these conditions.
