Yesterday was quite windy and wavy and completely dry. Our tropical wave is getting closer. Right now it is off the Miskito Coast and should arrive here tonight. The The GFS rain total prediction through Sunday night shows 18 centimeters over (.75 inches) Coxen Hole. The Euro model is much more doubtful about us getting much rain, predicting about half an inch in West Bay and less than a quarter of an inch on the west side of the island.
Today we’ll have mostly sunny skies with increasing clouds. Winds will be from the east at 17-22 mph and seas at 3 feet (1 meter). Tonight we’ll have a decent chance of rain, and that chance extends into Friday and especially Friday night. Winds should be a bit calmer during the day from the east at 7-12 mph and 2 foot (.6 meter) seas, rising to 15-20 mph Friday evening with 3 foot seas.
Over the weekend we should have partly sunny skies and about a 30 percent chance of scattered showers. Winds will continue in the 7-12 mph range during the daytime rising to 15-20 mph in the evenings. Let me know when you see rain and how much. Have a great Thursday!
