Long period, northerly swells will continue to produce above normal sea conditions. Seas peaking up to 8 feet can be expected. As a result, Small Craft and High Surf Advisories are in effect for St. Maarten. Small craft operators and sea bathers should exercise extreme caution.

The Meteorological Department of St. Maarten will continue to monitor this system and update the public accordingly.
