May 5, 2023: Good morning Bay Islands. We wake up to winds 20-25 mph and seas around 4 feet. Skies are clear and there hasn’t been much air pollution thank goodness. Today and tonight will be windy, with wind getting up to 30-35 mph tonight with seas 4-5 feet. Tomorrow will be a LITTLE calmer, with daytime winds 15-20 mph and seas 2-3 feet and nighttime winds 22-27 mph and seas at 4 feet. The first part of next week will be much the same and we will continue dry with only occasional high, dry clouds.

The weather map I am including today gives us a little hope. The green is dry air in the upper atmosphere, and the red is moist air, the kind that brings us scattered showers. You will see that toward the end of next week we get moist air and it stays with us into the latter part of May. If this holds true it will mean daily chances of rain in that time period. Let’s hope so. Low tide is 2:17 p.m. Have a great Friday!
