March 19, 2023: Good morning, Bay Islands! This morning we awake to cloudy skies, a moderate west wind and seas at 3 feet. Because our winds are generally from the west, West Bay Beach is a little wavier than usual.

We had clouds with some thunder move down from the Yucatan last night, but there wasn’t a whole lot of rain. Utila got .06 and Sandy Bay got .01. If you got anything let me know in comments.

The cold front is in the northern part of the Yucatan and will get closer as we go through today.

Today we should have some sun and some clouds and a small chance of rain. Winds will be from the west at 10-15 mph and seas 2-3 feet, especially on the north and west sides. Tonight, through the day tomorrow and tomorrow night we have a lot of clouds and a very good chance of rain. Most models are giving us between 1-2 inches of rain. Let’s hope we get it, because after that the forecast is very dry. Tomorrow we will have north winds at 10 mph and we should be cool, in the upper 70s to around 80. Tuesday winds will turn to the east at 12-17 but because the winds north of us will be stronger, our seas will be up to around 4 feet. Rain should be less on Tuesday, but there will be scattered showers around through Tuesday night. Wednesday morning and Thursday morning there are small chances of showers, but after that we turn dry and windy, especially for the following weekend. Have a great Sunday!
