Seven Day Forecast For The Bahamas from 5th to 11th January 2024

Fri, Jan 5th 2024, 02:02 PM

General Situation: This week marks the end of cooler winter temperatures and drier conditions and the onset of an atypical warming trend, coupled with increased shower chances in association with a series of weak cold fronts moving into the area. The first front will move into the Northwest Bahamas by tonight and will stall across the Exuma Cays early Friday. This front will incur some cloudy conditions and showers over portions of the Northwest Bahamas leading into Saturday, before lifting northwards. The weekend will be dominated by a surface ridge supporting a southerly wind regime, elevated temperatures and an uptick in sporadic showers just ahead of the second front that will push into the area on Sunday. The combination of an intensifying area of low pressure over the Midwest states, along with high pressure off the Northeastern seaboard, will briefly introduce strong winds and advisory conditions across The Bahamas at the beginning of the workweek.  Quelling winds and subsiding seas will come into play as the third front moves into the area by the middle of next week.
 
Friday 5th –Partly sunny and warm, with increased cloud coverage and becoming breezy with light to moderate showers along the front over the Northwest Bahamas (inclusive of New Providence) throughout the day. Fair to partly cloudy and mild at night. Maximum temperature 74°F and minimum temperature 68°F.  A small craft advisory will be in effect for Atlantic exposures, and a small craft caution will remain in effect for local offshore waters of the Northwest Bahamas. Winds Northeast to East at 10 to 15 knots ahead of the front, increasing 15 to 25 knots behind the front. Seas 2 to 4 feet ahead of the frontal boundary, building 4 to 6 feet over local waters behind the front… Expect 5 to 8 feet along the Atlantic exposures of the Northwest Bahamas.
 
Saturday 6th – Partly to occasionally cloudy, warm and breezy with widely scattered showers and the chance of isolated thunderstorms in the Northwest Bahamas… Mostly sunny, warm and humid with a few isolated showers during the day, becoming mostly fair and a tad warm at night. Maximum temperature 78°F and minimum temperature 69°F.  Small craft operators and beachgoers should exercise caution in the Northwest Bahamas and along all Atlantic exposures. Winds Southeast to South at 15 to 20 knots in the Northwest Bahamas, shifting East to Southeast at 10 to 15 knots across the Central and Southeast Bahamas. Seas 4 to 7 feet over the ocean in the Northwest Bahamas and along Atlantic exposures, subsiding 2 to 4 feet over local waters of the Central and Southeast Bahamas.
 
Sunday 7th –Partly cloudy and warm with isolated to widely scattered showers and the slight chance of a few offshore thunderstorms across the Northwest Bahamas… Partly sunny, very warm and humid with a few spotty showers during the day; turning mostly fair and warm at night elsewhere. Maximum temperature 79°F and minimum temperature 70°F.  A small craft caution will remain in effect for Atlantic exposures due to swells.  Winds South to Southwest at 10 to 15 knots ahead of the front, shifting Northwest to North at 10 to 15 knots after the frontal passage in the Northwest Bahamas, and Southeast to South at 10 knots or less across the remainder of the islands. Seas 2 to 4 feet over local waters but slightly higher in subsiding swells.

Monday 8th – A mix of sun and clouds, a tad warm and breezy with lingering showers along the front during the day; turning partly cloudy and locally windy at night. Maximum temperature 77°F and minimum temperature 71°F.  Small craft operators and beachgoers should exercise caution in the Northwest Bahamas.  Winds Northeast to East at 15 knots ahead of the front, increasing 15 to 20 knots but gusty at times after the frontal passage.  Seas 4 to 7 feet over open waters in the Northwest Bahamas, subsiding 3 to 5 feet elsewhere.
 
Tuesday 9th – Partly sunny, very warm and windy with quick passing showers during the day; turning mostly fair and breezy tonight.  Maximum temperature 82°F and minimum temperature 73°F.  A small craft advisory will be in effect.  Winds Southeast to South at 20 to 25 knots in the Northwest Bahamas, shifting East to Southeast at 15 to 25 knots elsewhere. Seas 5 to 8 feet over local offshore waters, building 6 to 9 feet along Atlantic exposures of the Northwest Bahamas.
 
Wednesday 10th – Partly cloudy to cloudy and warm with isolated showers and thunderstorms along the front. Maximum temperature 77°F and minimum temperature 72°F. A small craft advisory will remain in effect for all Atlantic Exposures due to swells.  Winds Southwest to West at 15 knots ahead of the front, shifting Northwest to North at 10 to 15 knots behind the front in the Northwest Bahamas…Southeast to South at 10 to 15 knots over the Central and Southeast Bahamas.  Seas 3 to 5 feet over local waters, building 5 to 8 feet along Atlantic exposures in moderate easterly swells.
