Re: My last little bit of planning
Most often strengthens in the afternoon and pretty close to the forecasts, which we always followed closely.
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)
