The tall ships moored around the Baltimore harbor for the Star-Spangled Sailabration will depart just ahead of a brief heat wave setting in Wednesday, meaning one last day of pleasant weather to watch the ships sail away on Tuesday.
The tall ships are scheduled to raise their sails and breeze southward in the "Parade of Sail" between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Tuesday. Navy warships will depart before that, from, 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Winds will be coming from the south-southeast, potentially hampering the tall ships from departing under sail. But winds are forecasted to be light, about 6 mph.
