Dec. 25, 2021: Good morning, Roatan! We got a nice, cool rain last night, and most locations on the island recorded between a quarter and a third of an inch of rain.
Today we have mostly fair-weather clouds overhead, so we will have only the slightest chance of a passing shower, with winds from the east/northeast at 7-12 mph and seas at 2 feet (.6 meters). Tomorrow will be mostly sunny with east winds 5-10 mph and seas at 1-2 feet (.3 to .6 meters). Monday morning there will be a small chance of showers, and that will be the best chance of showers we will have for the entire week. Next week will be TRW (Typical Roatan Weather) with brisk east winds, 3 foot seas and only a small chance of a passing shower.
This is a day a lot of folks are thinking about Jesus, so I thought I would share my favorite weather-related passage about the Christ. It comes from Mark 4:37-41: Now a great violent windstorm broke out, and the waves kept crashing into the boat, so that the boat was close to being swamped. … With that he got up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea: “Hush! Be quiet!” And the wind abated, and a great calm set in. … And they said to one another: “Who really is this? Even the wind and the sea obey him.”
I cannot wait for God’s Kingdom to come and God’s will to be done on Earth. Then, Jesus will be God’s King and chief meteorologist. No more deadly storms like Eta and Iota. No more worries about climate change. Just perfect conditions as far as the eye can see. That will be the best weather forecast.
