March 23, 2023: Good morning Bay Islands! Early this morning West Bay and West End got a couple of rounds of rain, good for a quarter of an inch. The rest of the island stayed mostly dry.

Satellite at 6:15 a.m.

There are clouds around this morning, so we will keep a chance of a morning shower. I’ve circled in yellow an area of clouds well to our east. Most of the time these disappear in late morning, but if they hold together and don’t move to our south, it may give us a small chance of rain late in the morning.

This morning seas are 3 feet on the southside and 2 feet on the northside. Winds are still fairly calm, but we definitely expect them to start blowing harder from the east, giving us 4-5 foot waves tonight, 5-6 foot waves tomorrow night and 6-8 foot waves Saturday night. Daytime wave will generally be about 2 feet less than the nighttime waves. In other words be careful out on the sea.
We are entering a period of extremely dry air overhead, so we will see fewer and fewer clouds in the days ahead.

Low tide is 4:17 p.m. Have a great Thursday!
