Follow the Environment Canada forecasts and know what stations to monitor for your forecasts and conditions.

Pacific - South Coast - Marine Weather - Environment Canada

Johnstone Strait - South Coast - Weather Conditions - Environment Canada

BTW - EC does not issue small craft warnings, they issue strong wind warnings at the same wind speeds (20 knots)
