…A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR ST. MAARTEN UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE…
The Atlantic high pressure system is strengthening and causing the pressure gradient across the region to tighten. This development will enable a further increase in wind speeds. As a result, marine conditions are expected to become hazardous as seas become rough with waves reaching 8 to 13 feet.
A small craft advisory is therefore in effect. Sea users and persons with interests along the coast should exercise caution and secure their property.
