March 26, 2022: Good morning Roatan! These are our rain measurements for the last 24 hours as of 6 a.m.

.75 of an inch, Punta Blanca

1.85 Politilly

1.73 Coral View

1.39 Sandy Bay

1.63 Sandy Bay-SOL

1.4 West Bay

1.33 Utila

The computer rain totals have gone up. In the maps you see the predicted rain totals by midday Tuesday, when all of this is supposed to end. The Euro model at the top is predicting about 7 more inches, and the US model at the bottom predicts about 4 inches. In other words we are about to get wetter. Winds today should be from the north/northwest at 12-17 mph and seas at 3 feet (1 meter) especially on the north side.

Rain continues off and on through Monday, when the winds will turn back to the east. Rain tapers off to occasional showers Tuesday morning and finally comes to an end. After that we will be back to stiff east winds and dry conditions for the rest of the week. Have a great, wet weekend!
