…A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR ST. MAARTEN
FROM 8PM FRIDAY 6 NOVEMBER 2015 UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE…
Due to the passage of a westward moving tropical wave across the Eastern Caribbean, sea conditions will become rough and hazardous, up to 8 feet within the next 12 hours. The highest waves are expected along our northern and eastern facing shores.
A small craft advisory is therefore in effect. Sea users (i.e. swimmers and occupants of small crafts) and persons with interests along the coast should exercise extreme caution. Some coastal flooding is also possible, and owners of coastal facilities should try to protect their possessions against destructive waves.
Seas are forecast to begin gradually subsiding by late Sunday 8 November 2015.
A Special Bulletin is issued for weather events that are unusual, cause general inconvenience or public concern (requiring the attention and action of fire department and/or police authorities) and cannot adequately be described in a regular weather forecast.
A Small Craft Advisory announces that the sea will likely become somewhat rough (today) or is already occurring.
