Tow Bee Boating Safety Tip: Check Weather Forecast Before Each Outing!

.

A beautiful morning on the water can quickly turn into a windy, stormy afternoon. This is why it is important to check the weather forecast before you head out on the water. You can check the marine forecast for your area as well as access the Weather Channel and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) Marine Forecasts page.
.
It is also important to continue checking the weather while you are out on the water. If you have a VHF radio, you can tune to the weather channel frequency. Even if you don’t have a radio, you can still keep an eye out for changes in wind direction and/or wind speed. And you can also watch for the buildup of dark clouds, especially in the western sky.
