In violation of a suggestion that I personally verify all that I post, I pass on the following prediction. I quote:
Tuesday, December 28, 2010, 12:00 noon - Appears that Mother Nature will throw a little bit of everything at us the next few days – seas, wind, rain. First, forecasts call for some of the largest seas so far this season starting early Wed. through early Friday. High seas marine forecast calls for 9-11 foot NW swells, which means 12 - 15+ foot surf from the NW is possible on the north beaches. By Thursday, these seas could be life threatening for any bathers crazy enough to venture in the water. Add to this NE gusty winds of 20 – 25 mph with higher gusts later Wednesday and on Thursday, causing wind-driven spray and erosion. Finally, a frontal boundary approaching from the west will give us an increasing chance of showers – could be heavy at times, especially Thursday. Winds in excess of 30 mph are possible in passing squalls. By late Thursday, the south beaches can expect ground seas for several days as the system moves off to our SE.
The NWS has already issued a small craft advisory tonight through Friday evening, and the Meteorological Dept. in Curacao has issued a high surf advisory for St.. Martin’s north shore.
Summary – Wed. through Fri., expect very rough seas from the NW, gusty wind conditions from the NE, ground seas on the south beaches and an increasing chance of showers/rain.
