Today, there is a gale warning in effect for our region. The current marine forecast is: "Wind south 25 to 35 knots, diminishing to northwest 15 to 20 knots this afternoon, then veering northerly 20 to 25 knots near midnight." We've been experiencing gusts from 25-38 mph since last night! As if that wasn't enough to keep us out of the Bay, there was a torrential downpour this morning that lasted for hours.
Plenty of whitecaps this morning.
Here's a short video clip to demonstrate these strong gusts:
