* WINDS...North 15 to 25 kt through late evening.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

A Small Craft Advisory for wind means that wind speeds of 21 to
33 knots are expected. Inexperienced mariners, especially those
operating smaller vessels should avoid navigating in these

much farther from shoaling areas than is normally experienced.
