There is a deep low of 970 mb off the coast affecting this area and tomorrow will be its biggest effect. The prediction for tomorrow (Tuesday) is for 15-30 kt E winds in the Strait of Juan de Fuca gusting to 45 kt. Prudence would dictate that we sit tight in Port Angeles except that the forecast for Wednesday is for 5-15 kt SE winds switching to SW at noon. We figured that it is safer to do the 50-nm trip to Neah Bay with strong winds in daylight than clawing our way in weaker winds and arriving after dark. So we plan to depart at about 7 AM tomorrow for Neah Bay.
