Wet and Windy and…of course… Waves

The National Weather Service has issued a Wind Advisory through 4:00 am Wednesday morning. We’re currently heading towards a low tide. However at around 3:00 am, an 11 foot tide is predicted with high tide of 11.2 at 3:45 am Wednesday.  The National Weather Service has the winds peaking around midnight, which looks to be around 6:00 ft and should hopefully be a “non-event”.
