Small craft warning goes into effect from midnight until 2 am Sunday
Fresh to strong and gusty winds are expected to cause a combination of wind waves and wind swells to reach hazardous levels, especially in open waters on the Atlantic sides of the islands. The threat level to the life, livelihood, property and infrastructure of mariners is forecast to remain high, and there is the potential for extensive impacts. A small craft warning means that wind speeds of 41 km/h or higher (22 knots or higher) and or wind waves and or wind swells of 2.7 metres (9 feet) or greater are occurring or imminent.
Small craft operators should stay in or near port, seek safe harbour, alter course, and/or secure their vessels from severe conditions.
