Sounds Nasty

;Fayetteville, NC

we're hear to see Nick off he deploys tomorrow.

Hellishly hot , 97F 39C. Time to move north. The weather up there doesn't sound good either. See below.



SPECIAL LAKE CHAMPLAIN WEATHER DISCUSSION... AS OF 129 PM EDT TUESDAY...LAKE CHAMPLAIN LEVELS ARE FALLING VERY SLOWLY...AVERAGING AROUND 102.3 FEET. IN ADDITION...

WINDS WILL BECOME A MAJOR FACTOR ON LAKE CHAMPLAIN THURSDAY. NORTH WINDS AROUND 10 KNOTS TODAY WILL BECOME SOUTH TONIGHT AND INCREASE TO 15-25 KNOTS BY THURSDAY MORNING. SOUTH WINDS OF 20-30 KNOTS ARE EXPECTED ON THURSDAY WITH WAVE HEIGHTS O 3 TO 5 FEET. SEICHE EFFECTS FROM THE WIND WILL CAUSE THE LAKE LEVEL TO RISE TO NEAR 102.8 FEET ACROSS THE NORTHERN HALF OF THE LAKE THURSDAY...WITH SOME EROSION TO SOUTH FACING SHORELINES. WINDS WILL CONTINUE FROM THE SOUTH ON FRIDAY...BUT NOT AS STRONG AT 10 TO 20 KNOTS.

FOR BOATERS MANY HAZARDS STILL EXIST. BREAKWATER AND OTHER ROCKS OR OBSTRUCTIONS TO NAVIGATION MAY BE OBSCURED BY THE HIGH WATER LEVELS ON THE LAKE. IN ADDITION...PLENTY OF DEBRIS REMAIN IN THE LAKE...ESPECIALLY NEAR RIVER MOUTHS. LASTLY...THE NEAR-SHORE LAKE TEMPERATURES HAVE ONLY WARMED TO AROUND 50 DEGREES...WHICH COULD LEAD TO POTENTIAL HYPOTHERMIC CONDITIONS IF ONE WERE TO FALL INTO THE WATER. DUE TO THE ABOVE FACTORS...RECREATIONAL BOATING IS DISCOURAGED AT THIS TIME. RECREATIONAL FORECAST...UPDATED NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BURLINGTON
