A small craft advisory is in effect for Barbados for above normal swell heights until 6 p.m. Saturday, October 23.

A small-craft advisory is issued when sustained winds of 20 to 25 knots and/or sea swells of 2.5 to 3.0 metres (8 to 10 feet) and/or reduced visibility (less than 10 km but greater than 5 km) are affecting or forecast to affect the marine area within the next 36 hours.

This advisory is in effect mainly along northern, eastern and southern sections of the island.

All marine craft operators and beachgoers should be aware that large open water swells can be hazardous to some vessels and the operation of smaller vessels can be difficult at times. (PR/SAT)
