Nov. 23, 2021

As you can see, the cold front weakens considerably on the western end as it approaches Roatan.

Nov. 23, 2021: Depending where you were yesterday you either got real wet or got nothing. In the last 24 hours ending 7 a.m. today West Bay got .42 of an inch, West End .65, Sandy Bay SOL 1.65 (though the other Sandy Bay station only got .19), Coral View .04, First Bight 1.6, Politilly .84, and here on Lucy Point .43. Most of ours came around midnight, but many locations got a good afternoon rain yesterday.

Our satellite image shows our end of the cold front is much weaker than we expected. That would lead me to believe that our rain threat is lower than the models indicate for today. They still say our north winds should get a little stronger this afternoon and they still want to give us a chance for an afternoon shower. I’d put it at about 40 percent. Rain chances go way down tonight and tomorrow.

Rain chances also look low for the U.S. holiday on Thursday. Winds will be out of the northeast at 10 mph with 2 foot (.6 meter) seas on Thursday. There are no major storms in our forecast through the end of the week, but we can’t rule out a passing shower, especially Friday and Saturday. Have a great Tuesday!
