Sept 25: 44th Hobie 16 Championship Race Day 5 Forecast

The coastal storm is now pulling away from the region to the SE as high pressure moves in from the W/NW. This will place the Delaware Bay in an area of N/NE flow. Given the location of convergence directly over the region, these N/NE winds could sustain at 10-15 knots for at least the first part of the day with gusts to 25 knots. Winds should then subside in the afternoon to 5-10 knots with gusts to 15 knots. Skies should be mostly sunny with just a few flat bottom clouds possible here and there.
