The National Weather Service has issued a High Wind Warning until 8:00 p.m. this evening…stating:
…SOUTH WINDS 25 TO 35 MPH WITH GUSTS 60 MPH UNTIL THE EARLY EVENING HOURS. WINDS EASING TO 15 TO 25 MPH AFTER 8 PM AND TO 10 TO 15 MPH AFTER MIDNIGHT.
Tides are currently at about 5 ft (estimating from my tide chart) with the next high tide of 9.52 ft at 9:14 p.m. tonight. Picturing the waves 4.52 feet higher is a bit daunting.
