The following is a safe boating message from the National Safe Boating Council and the National Weather Service. Thunderstorms can be a mariner's worst nightmare. They can develop quickly and create dangerous wind and wave conditions. Thunderstorms can bring shifting and gusty winds, lightning, waterspouts, and torrential downpours which can turn a day's pleasure into a nightmare of distress. There are no specific warnings or advisories for lightning but all thunderstorms produce lightning. A lightning strike to a vessel can be catastrophic, especially if it results in a fire or loss of electronics. If your boat has a cabin, then stay inside and avoid touching metal or electrical devices. If your boat doesn't have a cabin, stay as low as you can in the boat. Boaters should use extra caution when thunderstorm conditions exist and have a plan of escape. Mariners are especially vulnerable because at times they may be unable to reach port quickly. It is therefore strongly recommended you do not venture out if thunderstorms are a possibility. If you do venture out and recognize thunderstorms nearby, head to port or safe shelter as quickly as possible. Ultimately, boating safety begins ashore with planning and training. Keep in mind that thunderstorms are usually brief so waiting it out is better than riding it out.

Boaters: Be prepared for hurricane season. Don't wait until a hurricane warning to secure your boat. By the time a hurricane warning is issued, it's too late to be working on a dock safely. Listen to weather forecasts and plan ahead. Haul out your boat or add additional lines during a hurricane or tropical storm watch, which is issued before a warning, 48-hours before the anticipated onset of storm winds. This message has been brought to you by the NOAA National Weather Service, and the National Safe Boating Council. $$ SXUS74 KBRO 250029 RERMFE RECORD EVENT REPORT NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE BROWNSVILLE TX 0727 PM CDT THU MAY 24 2018 ...RECORD HIGH TEMPERATURE TIED SET AT MCALLEN...
