bad weather


bad weather
Rainy, stormy, or inclement weather. As the term appears in a charter party, not merely weather during which cargo cannot, by any possibility, be loaded, on a ship but such weather as is not reasonably fit and proper for loading; weather in which it is not reasonably safe to attempt loading with the appliances at hand, such as lighters. The term has also been held to include weather unfit for loading by reason of the state of the sea as well as that of the atmosphere. Anno: 26 ALR 1440.
