Feb. 8, 2023: Good morning, Bay Islands! We definitely got our easterly winds back again! These winds are called “trade winds” and back in the days of sailing ships bringing cargo, winds like these brought ships from Europe and Africa toward Central America.
Last night we had sustained winds around 30 mph for several hours. This morning winds are back to around 20 mph and seas at 4 feet.
Today, tomorrow and Friday we will have daytime winds of 20 mph and seas 3-4 feet and nighttime winds of 25-30 mph and seas 4-5 feet. Skies will be mostly clear.
Saturday the winds calm as our norther approaches. Right now it looks like most of the effects of this norther will be Sunday, with rain and north winds. The rain may linger a bit into Monday morning, but it should clear out quickly and we will get our east wind and clear skies back starting Tuesday. Have a great Wednesday!
