Short answer is yes it will be too rough. Tommorow (friday) looks OK. I was planning on going over the weekend but not with that forecast.

Reefcast goes by the spot you choose (>60' of water), but here are some random lat / lon #s I checked just now OFFSHORE:



NE winds EARLY saturday, then EAST at 15 to 20 knots, seas 3 to 4' every 3 seconds Saturday ... Sunday 4 to 6'



If you want me to help you with a detailed forecast for the spots/areas you want to fish, give me a holler. It updates 4 times a day & there is an Ensemble where you can checks its stableness.
