Oct. 28, 2021: Good morning, Roatan! The cold front that has been racing across the United States the last several days is now in the Gulf of Mexico and is set to pass through on Friday night bringing us a cooler weekend before rebounding and giving us a good chance of rain on Tuesday.

Today we’ll have mostly sunny skies and calmer winds, from the east at 7-12 mph and seas at 2 feet (.6 meters).

Tomorrow the winds will switch around to the west at 15-20 mph and we will have increasing clouds throughout the day and an increasing chance of showers.

Our best chance for rain comes Friday night into Saturday morning. The rain should clear out Saturday and we should have noticeably cooler weather. Our highs should be around 80 (26 C) and lows around 76 (24 C), but the big difference will be the drier air Sunday and Monday which should make things very comfortable. Later today I will talk about dewpoints and the effect they have on how hot it feels. Have a great Thursday!
