We will be on hand on Saturday morning keeping an eye on the actual weather here as well as the various forecasts, Tim has our mobile number and I would ask his to pass that on to you all. As mentioned earlier we will also be on the radio to confirm conditions in Braye as you approach.
The current forecast for Saturday morning from Jersey Met is:
Forecast from 7 am Friday to 7 am Saturday
Wind: W'ly F3 to 4 decreasing F2 or 3 during the morning, becoming locally variable with sea breezes in the afternoon.
Forecast: Cloudy and misty at first becoming fair by afternoon. Risk of sea fog patches.
Visibility: Moderate to poor becoming mainly moderate to good.
Sea State: Slight.
