Predictions: Visibility at Cove 2, Friday 12/12 @ 06h00

With the rains, higher than normal tides and associated river flooding, and high winds forecast for Thursday, what do you think the visibility at Cove 2 will look like on Friday at dawn?

I suspect poor, but if you have an opinion I'd love to hear it. :-)

And Port Townsend is not typically great anyway - must be worse. Don't get blown away out there today!

That's a perfect condition to do valve drill.

vis was actually pretty good today with the OpenROV at cove 1. Way better than 7', more like 15-20.

Went for a dive last night at about 6pm and vis was perfectly acceptable. Heard reports that it was virtually nothing the rest of the day though.

Vis at C2 tonight still holding up at 15'. No waves worth worrying about.
