Understanding Marine Forecasts

Before you hop in your boat and leave the marina in Annapolis, MD, you are going to need some idea of what to expect from the weather. Rushing out blindly can be dangerous and even lead to needed boat repair. Watch this video for an understanding of marine forecasts.

Inclement weather can be dangerous enough on land; when you have to deal with it on the water, you should always be prepared. Marine forecasts refer to large areas over certain periods of time, which is why they are reported in ranges rather than specifics. Make sure you prepare for conditions that are slightly outside of the reported ranges so you can be ready to handle the changing conditions on the water. It’s helpful to have a marine transceiver on you so you can check on the weather while you’re out there, and you should always check the forecast before leaving the docks.
