Good morning!  

As I sit on the Bridge writing this week’s blog there are scattered overcast clouds and North winds around 10 to 15 knots.  

This week’s weather will be influenced by Invest 91L, a tropical wave located about 200 miles northeast of Port Canaveral.

In case you’re wondering, “Invest” is the new term being used when forecasters begin running computer models on a tropical wave because of its potential for development. Forecast models have the wave developing, perhaps into a Tropical Depression, by Tuesday before it begins to move northward and out of our area. Any impact to our weather from Invest 91L should be minimal. The forecast through Tuesday night and into early Wednesday morning calls for similar conditions to what I see this morning. Winds will be mostly from the North with sea conditions topping out around 3-4 feet. The Southeast Shoal will provide some protection for us and knock down the seas a bit. The ride will be smooth and similar to what we have been experiencing all summer. After Invest 91L moves out of our area, winds will back around and become predominately Southerly by Wednesday afternoon through Friday. Sea conditions will diminish to 1-3 feet as the week moves on and the weather is shaping up to be sunny, hot, and beautiful for the 4th of July.

This weather forecast means it’s shaping up to be another great week offshore Port Canaveral. Join us on the Victory 1 and enjoy a great time at sea. Fireworks are scheduled on Thursday night, July 3rd from Port Canaveral and again on 

Saturday night, July 5th from Cocoa Beach. Both firework shows will be visible from the ship! We look forward to having you aboard. Happy 4th!
