Sept 24: 44th Hobie 16 Championship Race Day 4 Forecast

The heaviest rain and wind from the coastal low pressure system will occur between midnight tonight and noon tomorrow (Thursday). Rain should be tapering off as early as tomorrow morning but no later than afternoon as the Delaware Bay is brought into the SW quadrant of the low. The chance for light rain still exists however as the low takes its time pulling away. Regardless, winds should be 10-15 knots out of the E/NE with gusts to 25 knots the entire day. Swell should be down to 2-3 feet by late morning.
