Sept 23: 44th Hobie 16 Championship Race Day 3 Forecast

The approaching coastal low pressure system from the south will begin impacting the region on Wednesday. Skies should start out with a mixed bag of sun and clouds and slowly transition to clouds and rain with gusty winds out of the E/NE. Racing hours will end windier with larger swells than they began with. Here are the expected hourly conditions:
