It generally means thunderstorms this time of year. They are forecast for Saturday. Ironically, I just went to look again and now see a warm front approaching from the south. Its very likely that the tropical system offshore is messing with the models.

Bottom line. Tough conditions for sure, unpredictable to boot. You asked whether they were dangerous. That depends on the attitude and aptitude of the skipper. I think it was Chuck Yeager that said "The superior pilot uses his superior judgment to avoid situations requiring superior skill"
