We just got a look at the forecast for this week here in Marathon, Florida and it looks too good to be true! With minimal humidity, easy winds, temperatures in the low 80’s and sunshine forecasted for the rest of the week it is truly a great time to be in paradise.
Though Friday might show us a few intermittent cooling rain spells, today through Thursday is the perfect time to explore all that our beautiful Marathon hotel has to offer– whether it’s water sports, beach activities, fishing charters or just hanging out by the pool, we know that you and your family are bound to have a fantastic time this week.
Be sure to ask our front desk agents here at Tranquility Bay to recommend some activities that would best suit you and your family’s needs. We’re here to help!
We’re looking at a hot weekend ahead of us here at Tranquility Bay Hotel & Resort, with temperatures in the low 80’s from tomorrow through Sunday. The partial clouds that have been hanging around are forecasted to continue their loitering, which means it’s a great time to get out on the water without the threat of blazing overhead sun (and those subsequent blazing sunburns!)
Rain is forecasted at a low 30% which means partial, intermittent showers might show up between today and Saturday, while Sunday looks to be mostly clear.
As always, please remember to coat yourselves and your loved ones with a high SPF, drink plenty of water and spend your nights at the tiki bar (that last one isn’t as much a recommendation as how we plan on spending our weekend.)
Another day in paradise.
If it wasn’t so beautiful, it might get a little boring. All those perfectly warm, sunny days…. the endless crystalline waters…the vibrant sunsets that bathe our beach in pinks and reds… really, how much constant perfection can you take?
We know the answer: a lot.
This weekend we’re looking forward to more of the same: temperatures in the high 70’s to low 80’s, low winds out on the water and a brief chance of cooling rain sometime tomorrow. A great weekend to spend by the pool, out on the beach or zipping through the ocean on one of our JetSkis.
It’s a rough life, but someone has to do it. (Luckily this weekend that someone is you.)
Swing by the front desk here at Tranquility Bay if you need anything– we’re always happy to help.
Enjoy the weekend!
When you live someplace tropical, anything less than 85 degrees can feel a little chilly. This weekend, we’re throwing on a cozy sweater before we head out on the water. It appears that winter may have finally arrived here in the Keys– or at least, the later days of autumn. In any case, the sweltering temperatures we felt a few weeks ago have been replaced with cooler, crisper weather that makes us want to go exploring outside (and by exploring, we mean fishing. Definitely.)
The forecast for this weekend looks good, with party cloudy skies throughout and temperatures in the mid-to-high 70’s range. Sunday looks to be the hottest, so if you’re deciding on which day might be best for lazing by the pool or beach, that’s our pick.
Winds are expected to stay in their currently gusty state, with gusts of up to 20mph expected by Sunday. (Perhaps not the best weekend to go sailing if you’re not a bit adventurous.)
As always, stop by the front desk at Tranquility Bay if you need suggestions for fun activities for you and your family.
Here’s the weather roundup:
Before now, “Sandy” was just our favorite lovable dog from the Broadway show Annie. (Cue the lights; begin the high-pitched singing of “The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow.) But right now, the Sandy we’re dealing with isn’t a lovable mutt; it’s a tropical storm. Luckily, we hardly ever get totally clobbered by hurricanes here in the Keys– our friends in the Bahamas are rarely as lucky– so the most we’re looking at over the next few days is some rain and gusty winds. That means that today is a great day to grab the kids and get out on the water or beach, soak up a little sunshine and maybe pick up a board game or two (just in case) for the weekend.
The forecast over the next three days calls for sporadic rain, winds in the high 20’s and low 30’s, and temperatures in the mid-80 degree range, with skies clearing up by Sunday and sunny skies forecasted for the following week.
If you need recommendations for great places to take the kids on a rainy day, don’t hesitate to ask our front desk agents here at Tranquility Bay! They’d be happy to recommend a variety of places that are only a short drive from our Marathon hotel.
That perfect (or near-perfect) fall weather we’ve been patiently waiting for has seemingly arrived here in Marathon, bringing sunny days, calm winds and cooler nights– the perfect weather for spending the day at the pool and a night on the porch, enjoying the breeze. We’re setting up water adventures left and right…from jet-skiing to parasailing, now is the best time of the year to get out on the water for some sun & fun. Stop by the front desk here at Tranquility Bay Hotel & Resort and have one of our friendly front desk agents help you arrange the perfect outdoor activity! We know you come to our beautiful Marathon hotel to have fun, relax and really unwind, so now’s your chance to make sure you’re getting the most out of your vacation with us.
This week’s temperatures look to be holding at about 85 degrees, with nighttime temperatures cooling off to a pleasant 75 degrees or so. The chance of rain is forecasted to hover at about 20% this week (a nice respite from this summer’s near constant threat of thunderstorms!) and we’re celebrating with a nice tropical drink down at TJ’s Tikki Bar.
Anyone want to join us?
It looks like the on-and-off rain we’ve been seeing around here is going to continue throughout the rest of the week. The forecast for the next 7 days is calling for scattered thunderstorms through Sunday, with intermittent periods of sunshine throughout the week. That means temperatures will continue to hover in the mid-80’s, a nice respite from the scorching heat we’ve been having all month!
Reasonably high winds at the beginning of the week are expected to slow a little towards the weekend, so start planning that fishing charter you’ve been thinking about. In the meantime, there’s plenty to do in Marathon when a little rain comes our way. Stop by the front desk for some family-friendly rainy day activity ideas!
It’s shaping up to be a typically tropical week here in Marathon, with temperatures hovering around the high 80’s and low 90’s and the humidity staying high through Sunday. There’s a good chance we’ll see some rain on Thursday, with the chance of precipitation coming down to a reasonable 30% for the rest of the week/end. Tomorrow’s seas look a little rougher than what’s been forecasted for the weekend– though it’s going to be worth braving the choppy waves to get a little respite from this hot & humid weather!
As always, try to protect yourself and your loved ones from the sun’s harshest rays by wearing a high SFP, reapplying often, and- whenever possible- staying out of direct sun between the hours of 10am and 2pm. We hate to see a set of crispy shoulders ruin someone’s vacation!
Many of you wrote in to let us know that we at Tranquility Bay were in your thoughts as Tropical Storm Isaac approached us here in Marathon. We appreciated all your kind words immensely and are pleased to report that our resort suffered no damage and we are back to business as usual. If you’re planning on visiting us this week/end, you can expect no delays or discomforts from the storm whatsoever.
Amidst your emails were a few frantic messages about the adopted cat family we have here on the property– where would they go in the event of a hurricane? We’re happy to comment that the livelihood of these cats is just as important to us as you, and that they were moved to a secure shelter in case of flooding.
The cats were, of course, less than pleased about this arrangement, preferring their usual sun patches over a kennel. We have since apologized profusely to them for the discomfort caused in the evacuation process. They are playing it cool, as usual.
With Isaac in town, we haven’t been out on the beach lately, sticking to indoor movies and board games instead. This week’s forecast looks to be a continuation of the thundery gusts and indecisive skies we’ve been seeing these past couple of days. Expect more rain, wind and general gloominess to persist through the weekend, with intermittent watery sunshine making a possible appearance towards the end of the week. Those of you brave enough to get out on the water can expect hearty swells and winds, though the fish don’t seem to mind and have been showing up for those bold enough to try their luck at fishing. One thing’s for sure: regardless of the rain, the temperature is set to hover at a summery 90 degrees all week!
We hope you find a way to enjoy yourselves this week…keep dry, and swing by the front desk at our lovely Tranquility Bay Resort to inquire as to which rainy day activities our agents recommend.
