March 12, 2022: Good morning, Roatan! Winds should definitely get calmer today, with west winds taking over at 3-10 mph bringing our seas down to 2 feet (.66 meters). In comments I will post the satellite image which shows the front just now reaching Yucatan. But as you can see in the forecast map, the winds (shown with green) are forecast to dissipate as the front falls apart just south of Yucatan. This means no strong north winds for us and less rain than we usually get from a norther.
We will still have a chance of rain starting tomorrow morning and continuing through Monday morning, but models still give us between a quarter of an inch and half an inch. Winds will be east/northeast 10-15 mph with 2-3 foot waves tomorrow and from the east at 5-10 mph Monday with 1-2 foot waves.
By Monday evening, skies will be clearing and we will have east winds 12-17 mph. Next week looks mostly sunny with our best chance of rain being Thursday morning. Typical east winds will be the rule next week, with things getting windier as we get to the following weekend.
Have a great weekend!
