Urgent Marine Weather Message - A Small Craft Advisory is Again in Effect Until Sunday
Hazardous seas, due to fresh winds resulting from a relatively tight pressure gradient and or wind surges from tropical waves, are expected to cause a high threat to the life and property of mariners until Sunday. Winds: East at 22 to 37 km/h (12 to 20 knots; 14 to 23 mph), with strong gusts to around 56 km/h (30 knots; 35 mph). Seas (significant wave heights): 1.5 to 2.5 metres (5 to 8 feet), occasionally or locally reaching 3 metres (10 feet). Dominant wind wave period is 5 to 7 seconds. Impacts (possible/likely/expected): Loss of life at sea; injuries to mariners; financial losses; disruption of fisheries and scarcity of fish products and disruption to marine transportation. Precautionary/preparedness actions: A small craft advisory means that wind speeds of 21 to 33 knots and or wind waves and or wind swells of 7 feet or greater are expected to produce hazardous wave conditions to small crafts.
Inexperienced mariners, especially those operating smaller vessels should avoid navigating in these conditions. Please continue to monitor these hazardous, life-threatening marine conditions. Stay tuned to updates coming out of the Met Office via antiguamet.com
ABMS Met Office at 462-3017, if conformation of this message is needed.
