Hourly predictions for this weekend's storm

Wind, wave and swell predictions for Cape Flattery and the west entrance of the Strait of Juan de Fuca this weekend.

Nothe that "Significant Wave Height" is the average height of the highest 1/3 of the wind waves. So statistically, a predicted SWH of 10' means that you occasionally see wind waves of 20', in addition to the swell. These "statistical waves" are sometimes erroneously called "rogue waves", but they are actually a normal and expected part of the bell-curve of wave heights at a given time.
