There are a lot of weak atmospheric systems moving around our area through Tuesday which will change our wind direction
but will have little to do with the expected wind speed. So if you don’t like the wind direction today, wait until tomorrow.

Today and tonight, NOAA is calling for NE to E winds at 10 to 15 knots with 3 to 4 foot seas outside today and dropping
somewhat by tonight. This wind is resulting from the cold front that passed N and E of us the other day. I doubt that we will see
winds much higher than 10 knots. The satellite image shows the skies beautifully clear around our latitude all the way to the
coast of Africa. We will certainly see a few clouds pass by but nothing significant. The high temperature will be near 90 degs.
with the low tonight around 81 degs. The cuts and the Sea of Abaco should be well behaved and just an all around beautiful day.
The barometer is 1020.2 mb. or 30.13 in. and falling somewhat. The tide will be high at 9:26 and 2.8 feet above datum. Low tide
will arrive at 3:23, 0.3 feet above datum with the evening high occurring at 9:42 at 3 feet above datum.

For tomorrow and tomorrow night, the wind will be S to SW at around 10 knots with Atlantic seas 3 to 4 feet. Good weather
should prevail.

On Sunday through Monday the winds will remain light out of the S to SW with seas 3 to 5 feet. Just to our S they are
expecting light E to SE winds which we could see some of. Otherwise we are in for two more beautiful days.

On Tuesday, they are expecting SE to S winds at 10 to 15 knots with 3 to 5 foot seas with a possibility of some scattered
showers and t-storms.

The FL coastal waters forecast expects a very quiet period without the NE winds since they are a little too far away to reach. So
for today and tonight they are calling for E winds at 5 to 10 knots with seas 2 feet or less. Tomorrow, they are expecting the
winds to began to clock becoming SE on Saturday then SW for Saturday night through Tuesday. Winds will stay light at 10
knots or less with seas 2 feet or less.

The weather in the Atlantic remains beautiful. The storm that I saw yesterday has weakened moved E’ward and back over land.
She is finished.
