Oct. 1, 2021: Good morning and welcome to October. We’re officially recording .88 of an inch for the month, well under our average of 4.84. That is the least rain in September since 2009. We close out the dry season with 6.74 inches of rain since May 1, a period that on average should see 20.76 inches. As you can see from the chart, October is the start of the rainy season, but it won’t start out rainy.

Today will be mostly sunny with east winds 15-20 mph and 2-3 foot (.6 to 1 meter) seas. There will be a slight chance of an overnight shower.

Tomorrow winds will be 12-17 mph and 2 foot seas, with perhaps a little better chance of an overnight shower, around 30 percent.

Sunday we return to flat calm seas and winds. Each day through the week will have a small chance of a scattered shower, but there is an indication there may be some tropical development toward the end of the week, meaning we have some hope for rainier weather toward next weekend. Have a great Friday!
