...SMALL CRAFT SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION...
Synopsis: Moderate northeast winds between 15 and 19 knots along with seas between 3 and 5 feet, occasionally up to 6 feet, this morning will result in hazardous conditions for small craft over the offshore coastal waters through early afternoon. Winds and seas will gradually subside later this afternoon before increasing again tonight. This should bring a return to hazardous conditions for small craft tonight over the coastal waters as winds increase back to between 15 and 20 knots. Winds and seas will again decrease on Friday through Saturday morning.

A strong cold front will push through the coastal waters Saturday evening with strong winds and rough seas expected later Saturday night, through the remainder of the weekend, and into early next week. Small craft advisories will likely be needed for this time period.
