Satellite at 7:30 a.m.

May 12, 2023: Good morning, Bay Islands. We wake up to hazy skies and southeast winds 10-15 mph. The haze is Saharan dust mixed with clouds. You can see the brown color of the dust in the satellite map.

Today I’m going to say something I haven’t been able to say in awhile, and that is that I can’t guarantee it’s going to be totally dry today. The chance of rain this evening is VERY LOW and whatever rain anyone gets will pass quickly, but our chances are NOT ZERO the way they have been the last few weeks, probably more like 10 percent. We will remain windy and hazy through the weekend with a 10 percent chance of rain each day.

Our chances of rain go up on Monday and our winds and seas get calmer. Tuesday and Wednesday will be quite calm, calmer than we’ve seen in a couple of weeks. Monday night, Tuesday morning and Tuesday night will be our best chances of rain.

After that our rain chances go down, but they don’t go down to zero. I think we are going into a different weather pattern, more typical of June, where we have small nightly chances of seeing a shower. Low tides are 9:32 a.m. and 11 p.m. Have a great Friday!
