Small Craft for Hazardous Seas Advisory
Statement as of 8:43 PM PDT on April 24, 2014

...Small Craft Advisory remains in effect until 11 PM PDT this evening... ...Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas in effect until 5 am PDT Friday...

The National Weather Service in Seattle has issued a Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas...which is in effect until 5 am PDT Friday.

* Seas...westerly swell at 10 feet with a 10 to 12 second period.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Small Craft Advisory means that wind speeds of 21 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.

A Small Craft Advisory for hazardous seas means that waves will be hazardous to small craft. Mariners should avoid shoaling areas. Long period swell can sharpen into large breaking waves in shoaling areas. It is not unusual for waves to break much farther from shoaling areas than is normally experienced. Remember... breaking waves can easily capsize even larger vessels.
