Manageable winds on Long Island waters Wednesday, forecasters say

Despite occasional gusts of up to 25 knots, northwest winds are expected to remain just below the small craft advisory level for Long Island waters Wednesday, the National Weather Service said in its marine advisory.

Winds of 10 to 15 knots gusting at times to 20 to 25 knots are forecast, said an official with the service's Upton office.

Wave heights for ocean waters will be 3 to 4 feet on Wednesday, the service said.

The next significant change to winds should be Friday afternoon, when small craft advisory levels could develop with "the approach and passage of a stronger cold front."

Wednesday's inland forecast calls for sunny skies and daily highs in the mid to upper 60s with breezy northwest winds.
