The following is a safe boating week message from the National safe
boating Council and the National Weather Service for this years
National safe boating week.
The topic today: the marine forecast is critical to boat safety.
Weather and wave conditions can change suddenly, catching
boaters off guard and creating life threatening conditions. Take
particular note of any current advisories and warnings, including
small craft advisories, gale or storm warnings which alert mariners
to either high winds or waves occurring now or forecast to occur up
to 24 hours from now. Before setting out, obtain the latest marine
forecast and warning information from www.Weather.Gov/marine or NOAA
Weather Radio. Several days ahead of time you can begin listening
for extended outlooks which give general information out to the next
five days in both graphical and text format.
