The Wait Continues For The Extreme Dream

The Wait Continues For The Extreme Dream

Diana Nyad is still waiting in Florida for the right conditions to set off on her estimated 60+ hour 103-mile (165K) attempt from Cuba to Florida.

This is the kind of weather forecast she faces today and over the next few days:

Small craft advisory in effect. North to northeast winds around 20 knots. Winds highest beyond the reef. Seas beyond te reef 4-7 feet. Seas higher in the Gulf Stream.”

Saturday: “Northeast winds near 15 knots. Seas beyond the reef 3-5 feet. Seas higher in the Gulf Stream. Nearshore waters a moderate chop.”

Sunday: “Northeast to East winds 10-15 knots. Seas beyond the reef 2-4 feet. Seas higher in the Gulf Stream. Nearshore waters a light to moderate chop. Isolated showers.”

And the weather forecast is similar for next Monday and Tuesday. The wait and anticipation continues.
