...HEAVY FREEZING SPRAY WARNING REMAINS IN EFFECT UNTIL 6 PM CST
THIS EVENING...

* WHAT...For the Heavy Freezing Spray Warning, heavy freezing
  spray at a rate of 2 cm per hour or greater expected, and may
  rapidly accumulate on vessels. For the Gale Warning, southwest
  winds 20 to 30 kt with gusts up to 40 kt and waves 5 to 8 ft

  capsize or damage vessels and reduce visibility.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

Mariners should prepare for dangerous accumulation of ice on
their vessel. If possible, remain in port, avoid the warning area
or conduct mitigation.
