Good morning!  

Good morning!  Tropical Storm Arthur is still offshore and moving North at 5 knots according to the latest tropical advisory.  Here off Port Canaveral we can expect mostly West winds and periodic heavy rain as the storm bands move through the area.  Wind speeds will vary with higher gusts associated with the rain bands.

With regard to TS Arthur, the heaviest winds are located near the center of low pressure in the Northeast quadrant. Based on the storm’s location relative to Port Canaveral, the Northeast quadrant is the part of the storm farthest from our area.  

NOAA is forecasting max winds today locallyl from the West around 25 knots and diminishing throughout the day.

For today’s ride, I expect some moderate motion, especially during the turns. The 3-mile buoy is reporting sea heights less than 3 feet, however, I do expect confused sea conditions. We will do our best to keep the ride good and minimize the motion. If you are prone to motion sickness, I recommend you consider a C-band which are FREE today and available on board the ship.

 Winds will be mostly from the North with sea conditions topping out around 3-4 feet. The Southeast Shoal will provide some protection for us and knock down the seas a bit. The ride will be smooth and similar to what we have been experiencing all summer. After Invest 91L moves out of our area, winds will back around and become predominately Southerly by Wednesday afternoon through Friday. Sea conditions will diminish to 1-3 feet as the week moves on and the weather is shaping up to be sunny, hot, and beautiful for the 4th of July.

This weather forecast means it’s shaping up to be another great week offshore Port Canaveral. Join us on the Victory 1 and enjoy a great time at sea. Fireworks are scheduled on Thursday night, July 3rd from Port Canaveral and again on 

Saturday night, July 5th from Cocoa Beach. Both firework shows will be visible from the ship! We look forward to having you aboard. Happy 4th!
