Issued: 3:51 PM EDT Oct. 19, 2018 – National Weather Service

... Gale Warning remains in effect until 6 am EDT Saturday...
... Gale watch in effect from late Saturday night through Sunday
afternoon...

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a gale
watch, which is in effect from late Saturday night through Sunday
afternoon.

* Winds and seas... southwest winds 20 to 25 kt with gusts up to 35
kt tonight, then west with possible gusts to 35 kt late Saturday

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Gale Warning means winds of 34 to 47 knots are imminent or
occurring. Operating a vessel in gale conditions requires
experience and properly equipped vessels. It is highly
recommended that mariners without the proper experience seek safe
Harbor prior to the onset of gale conditions.

A gale watch is issued when the risk of gale force winds of 34 to
47 knots has significantly increased... but the specific timing
and/or location is still uncertain. It is intended to provide
additional lead time for mariners who may wish to consider
altering their plans.
