Jan. 29, 2022: Good morning, Roatan! At 8 a.m. the sea on the southside is almost dead calm. But as you can tell in the wind map shown here, the wind is coming. It is about 130 miles north of us as of 8 a.m. and should begin to arrive around noon. After 12 we will be dealing with brisk north winds around 20-25 mph. Also there is rain around, with the potential of an inch or more. Seas on the north side will be especially treacherous, perhaps around 7 feet (a little over 2 meters). I would definitely stay off the waters this afternoon and overnight.

Tomorrow the winds will start calming to 15-20 mph and seas should start subsiding, but still quite wavy, especially in the morning. We will have light rain showers possible through the day tomorrow.

Monday we quickly get back to TRW (Typical Roatan Weather) with mostly sunny skies, easterly trade winds 15-20 mph and seas at 3 feet (1 meter) mostly on the south side. These conditions will continue through next week. Have a great weekend and stay safe!
