Re: Weather Forecasts (Chesapeake in this case)

Nico,

Small craft advisory numbers are localized. So may be one thing outside of the Chesapeake, they may not be the same in the Chesapeake area. Each local NWS station around the country determines what they consider the wind speed/wave height combination should be for a SCA in their specific area.

At least, that's what was told to us at the weather seminar I took with a NWS forecaster.
