Sept. 16, 2021: Yesterday was beautiful and fairly calm. This morning is starting out the same, but winds should start to pick up as we get into the evening.

We start out the day with winds in the 10 mph range and seas at 1-2 feet (.3 to .6 meters), but this evening they will be in the 20 mph range and seas at 2-3 feet (.6 to 1 meter).

Tomorrow will be windier, with east winds 12-17 mph during the day and seas at 3 feet (1 meter) but getting up to 20-25 mph in the evening and seas at 4-5 feet (1.3 to 1.6 meters). Rain is highly unlikely today or tomorrow.

Saturday looks windy as well, with east winds 20-25 mph and seas at 3-4 feet. There will be a small chance of a shower Saturday evening. The first part of next week looks fairly calm, with chances of showers in the evenings.

The area of storms that came off the coast of Africa a couple of days ago (the red X in the middle of the Atlantic) is expected to develop in the next few days, but it is also expected to move north of the Lesser Antilles and stay out of the Caribbean. Only one computer run brings it into the Caribbean, but that could always be the one that gets it right.
