inexperienced mariners...especially those operating smaller
vessels should avoid navigating in these conditions.
a gale watch is issued when the risk of gale force winds of 34 to

and/or location is still uncertain. it is intended to provide
additional lead time for mariners who may wish to consider
altering their plans.
