Default 5-10mph NNE??????

Anyone else out there make the mistake I did yesterday morning?
The forecast for the South Shore (MA) was "light winds out of the NNE at 5-10mph"........WELL they were right about the NNE part and that part only.......I knew was in trouble when I arrived at the Plymouth ramp at 6:00 am and there were waves crashing against he jetty!.........anyhow my buddy and I made our way out towards the Gurnet and then beyond and the seas were building....I'm thinking easly 4-6 footers out there.....and I'd bet my house that the wind was cranking at LEAST 20mph.... It was a downright dangerous situation for a 20' boat.......needless to say there was no Cod jigging as we wisely turned around an headed for protected waters...
caught a 20" bass in Duxbury bay (see my other thread)

Anyone else out yesterday???

I always make it a habit to check the wave height, that is usaly a better incication of the conditions than the winf speed....

Wait until tomorrow.... it's going to get ALOT worse, this week stands to be a wash...

For wave heights I use the NOAA buoys. http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/Maps/Northeast.shtml

I also use NOAA marine forecasts on the web. http://weather.noaa.gov
