May 1, 2023: Good morning Bay Islands. No rain last night on the island and the big winner yesterday was West Bay with over half an inch. Winds got dead calm overnight and seas are 1-2 feet. We have high clouds this morning, but should stay dry. Winds will come back this afternoon and evening from the northeast at 10 mph. Tomorrow winds will turn more to the east and by nightfall should be up to 20-25 mph with seas around 3 feet. The rest of the week looks dry and breezy.
A big question is whether the smoke will return. It is hard to tell how much rain fell in northeast Honduras with poor radar coverage and no reporting stations, but my guess is not much. Unlike us, they will have small chances of rain this week, but as the wind turns back to the east watch for signs of returning smoke.
The longrange forecast is trying to give us rain chances around the middle of May. Low tides are 12:04 p.m. and 12:28 a.m. Have a great week!
