Good morning folks,


Well not much to report from this end other then overcast with some light rain and drizzle, wind variable between 200 and 270 degrees at this moment,  tempt. 26 / dew. 24 degrees Celcius, Q1005, some beach erosion on the west side of the island Hotel area,

light waves and chops, no thunder nor lightning.  Airport is being opened again as of this morning 7 am, I expected a little bit more of this system especially when looking at the area it covers on the map but it turned out to be less threathening, maybe not so for the next islands within its path.
