April 17, 2023: Good morning, Bay Islands. We wake up with some clouds in the western sky and winds around 20 mph and seas 3 feet on the north side and 4 feet on the south side. Winds should get a little calmer as the day goes on, and tomorrow should be super calm.

I am more hopeful about getting some rain tonight.

Satellite at 7 a.m.

I am more hopeful about getting some rain tonight. On the satellite you will see a disturbance over the Yucatan peninsula and Belize.

Rain gauges from Livingston, Guatemala on the coast and toward the west from there have picked up good rain showers up to about half an inch. Those clouds will move in our general direction today. We will have increasing clouds and about a 20 percent chance of a shower this afternoon. The best chance for rain is overnight into tomorrow morning.

The GFS model predicts a widespread area of about half an inch. Let’s hope it is right. It is the most optimistic model right now. The others aren’t so kind. Tomorrow after some morning showers we will have partly cloudy skies, winds 5-10 mph and seas 1-2 feet.

We clear out Wednesday and for the period into the weekend, we will have winds 20-25 mph and seas 3-4 feet under clear skies. Early next week looks calmer with perhaps an isolated shower around.

Low tides are 12:55 p.m. and 1:25 a.m. Have a good week!
