As a prudent captain ALWAYS add the lowest and highest forecasted winds together to get actual winds as you have obviously done here and hit it right on the nose. So many things come into play when trying to plan a trip on the bay. If the winds are from true south or north pretty much stay home, however all other winds are very dependent on where you plan fishing. High winds from west stay west high winds from east stay east. Pretty much common sense. I usually not always check wind wave conditions but more than likely aren't the conditions you'll encounter. Best weather prediction I can give is to get up, stick your nose out of the inlet and see what it's like! Cannot tell you how many trips have been cancelled due to the weather forcast the nite before. We cannot rely on our government to run a country properly let alone predict the weather. How would you like the weather man to predict your stock futures...... Oh boy!+1 on Fishweather for wind. I gave up on NOAA some time back, as "5-10 knots and 1 foot waves" often turns out to be 15 and 3 footers.
