Light Trade Winds Expected This Weekend
By Meteorologist Malika Dudley / Email: [email protected]
A Marine Weather Alert is posted for all coastal waters. A long-period south swell will bring potential for surges in harbors facing the south and may lead to waves breaking in and near harbor entrances (especially Sunday and Monday). Extreme tide changes could lead to locally strong currents even in channel entrances. Boaters should be alert to larger than normal surf along south shores this weekend.
