Oct. 29, 2021: Good morning, Roatan! At 7 a.m., we have a storm off the west side of Roatan that is getting weaker. The storm is in advance of a cold front that is about the enter Belize this morning and will pass through the islands later today. Today we will have west winds at 10-15 mph that will become northwest winds this evening at 15-20 mph. Seas will be 2 feet (.6 meters). The chance of rain will be with us through the day under mostly cloudy skies, though there will be bits of sunshine here and there. The chance of a heavy downpour will be there through early Saturday morning, but the chance will be the greatest this evening. There will also be the chance of thunder.
Rain should clear out Saturday morning, leaving us pleasant conditions. Winds will be north/northwest at 15-20 mph and 2 foot (.6 meter) seas. Saturday and especially Sunday will be quite pleasant. Winds on Sunday should be calmer, with low humidity and pleasant temperatures.
Rain comes back on Tuesday and the rest of the week looks pretty rainy. Cooler temps and rainier weather — it’s a much delayed and much anticipated start to the rainy season, but better late than never.
