Barking Dog Report: Gale Watch in Effect Friday Evening

It looks like we’re in for a doozy of a storm starting Friday afternoon and possibly lasting through the weekend with strong gusts and plenty of rain. The graph from Wind Alert shows potential gust reaching up to 48 mph with wind in the 40s from 8:00 pm to 5:00 am. The bottom graph shows us in the “red zone” for most of the weekend.¬†
Here’s what we have for the high tides:

  • Friday: 12.29 ft at 10:31 am
  • Saturday: 12.09 ft at 11:18 am
  • Sunday: 11.90 ft at 12.01 pm.

Last but not least, the marine forecast:
